King's Gambit Accepted

This is a games collection that gives a repertoire on how to play the King's Gambit Accepted(1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3.Nf3). I have tried to include only the most theoretically sound moves, so that means no dubious double Muzio gambits, that seems to have a clear refutation(9...Qf5!). On the other hand, i have included a few games on the Allgaier Gambit, because it's not completely clear that there is an easy refutation, and it's even less likely that your opponent will know it.

The Fischer defence is one of the most testing defences to the King's Gambit, and some people get put off by the main-line 6.Ng1 variation, so a couple of good alternatives are given: Gallagher's 5.d3!?, and the modern 5.b3!?, inspired by a similar line in the Becker.

The lines are mainly chosen based on the excellent book by Thomas Johansson, The King's Gambit for the Creative Aggressor, although i have used a few other sources as well.
