Fs, f4s, f5s & f7s for Old Timey Fredthebear Fun
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Slapdash, lettuce and some tabasco sauce, on wheat toast, dry. Hold the pickle! Wait a minute!? Tabasco sauce wasn't invented yet back then, at least not commercially. Let's go with mustard instead, and some sliced peppers and black olives!

Thank you Fischer of Men for providing so many of the Morphy games. Yeah, I got carried away, but what the hey. Also, thank you to KingG.

Bird's Opening, From Gambit lines:
1.f4 e5!? 2.fxe5 d6 3.exd6 Bxd6 4.Nf3 g5 (or 4...Nf6) with two main lines... - 5.g3 g4 6.Nh4 Ne7 7.d4 Ng6 8.NxNg6 hxNg6 9.Qd3 Nc6 10.c3 Bf5 - 5.d4 g4 6.Ne5 BxNe5 7.dxBe5 QxQd1+ 8.KxQd1 Nc6 9.Nc3 Bc6 Both lead to positions with chances for both players. White can avoid this by countering with 2.e4, transposing into the King's Gambit.
