|Dec-26-02|| ||GregorMendel: Interesting counter-gambit to the Bird Opening. The knight at g5 was a nail, and Black had to do something...I thought 9...Nd5 was poor, but didn't see another way to stop the onslaught of kingside pawns. Otherwise, White comes up with the point out of nowhere...I can't figure out how he won so easily. |
|Mar-16-03|| ||Bionic Brain: Maybe from Black's first move, GM? More usual is 1...d5, with Black aiming for a King's fianchetto. After this White usually continues with a Queen's fianchetto, or a Stonewall (Pawns on d4 and e3), both aiming for a Kingside attack.
1.f4 e5 is From's Gambit, and is usually met by 2.e4, transposing into the King's Gambit. |
|Jun-13-04|| ||King99: against the bird I prefer the From gambit for black.1.f4 E5 2.fxe5 d6! |
|Jul-29-04|| ||kevin86: <King99>just so you don't prefer the delayed from gambit with the white pieces.|
1 g4 e5 2f4 ♕h4# ha ha!
|Nov-07-05|| ||DeepBlade: <kevin86> hahaha that was funny!|
The opening sure looks like the Danish Gambit.

|Mar-08-07|| ||ChessDude33: I would most definately play 5. g4!|
|Apr-14-07|| ||Knight13: Fantastic game.
Now black needs to find a refutation!
|Oct-06-07|| ||DuskXIV: Inspirational game. I played the gambit against a friend (rated about the same as me) and won four (out of 4) with it until he stopped playing 1...f5|
But in that game I think that 5...g6 was better than 5...e6 it makes things slightly harder for white

Although, if you play the From Gambit, you have to be prepared to play against the King's Gambit, as white can play 2. e4 instead.
|Oct-28-08|| ||whiteshark: Nice-looking Bird|
|Feb-28-09|| ||WhiteRook48: trapped position!|
|Mar-12-09|| ||WhiteRook48: this proves 1....f5 is bad|
|Feb-18-10|| ||WhiteRook48: ok, this opening is just freaky|
