  Sneaky: I don't like Black's plan of moving his bishop twice and trading it for the Queen's knight that only moved once.

But the blunder 13. ...Ng6? was the beginning of the end.

  chessgames.com: Technically, no it's not, because if you look at Scotch Game (C45) you see that the Scotch is defined as 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 d4 exd4 4 Nxd4. Since Blackburne didn't recapture the pawn it's classified as something else.

If we wanted to, we could change the definition so that the position resulting after 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 d4 is considered the Scotch. Do you think we should? I'll have to check my hardcopy of ECO and find out where they would put this game.

Apr-17-03  novacane: I looked it up in google. 3...exd4 4.Nxd4 is just a possible variation of the Scotch gambit (C44). I wouldn't trust google though, some people have C44 as King's pawn game, some people as a Scotch gambit.

  ksadler: Basically King's Pawn Game (C44) is a catch all for those that aren't 3. d4, 3. Bb5 or 3. Bc4. For example, I play Alekhine's Defense (1. e4 Nf6), and often I get 1. e4 Nf6 2. d3 e5 3. Nf3 Nc6, which is a C44 (1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d3 Nf6).
