  tpstar: For the sharp Danish Gambit, Chigorin says take the money and run with 5 ... Qe7 6. Nc3 c6. If 7. Qc2 d6 8. 0-0-0 Be6 9. Be2 Nd7 10. Nf3 Nc5 & 11 ... 0-0-0. If 7. Nge2 b5 8. Bb3 a5 9. Rc1 Na6 10. 0-0 Nc5 & later 0-0. So if 7. Qb3 b5 8. Bd3/Be2 Na6 & 9 ... Nc5 looks solid, although it rules out 0-0-0 later.

Dec-15-05  popski: This 'money' is extremely hard to hold, but 5...♕e7 indeed looks most promising move. Interesting, Chigorin used to put his queen in front of his king also in French defence playing white.
Dec-11-07  psmith: Here's something interesting I found with the help of Fritz 5.32. In this game, 17. ♖c3!, with the idea of ♖g3, seems to be a major improvement.

Here's some analysis:

17. ♖c3

(a) 17...h6 18. ♖g3 ♕h7 19. ♘xg7+ ♗xg7 20. ♖xg7 ♕xg7 21. ♘f5 ♕g6 22. ♕d6

(b) 17... h5 18. ♖g3 ♕h7 19. ♘xg7+
♗xg7 20. ♖xg7 ♕xg7 21. ♘f5 ♕g6 22. ♕d6

(c) 17... ♗b7 18. ♖g3 ♕h5 19. ♕d3

(d) 17...♖g8 18. ♖g3 ♕h5 19. ♕d3

(e) 17... ♘xe4 18. ♕e2 d5 (18... ♔d8 19. ♕xe4 d5 20. ♕e5) 19. ♖xc6

(f) 17... a4 18. bxa4 bxa4 19. ♖g3 ♕h5 20. ♕a1 ♘g4 (20... ♘xe4 21. ♖e1 d5 22. ♖g5) 21. h3 d5 22. ♖xg4 ♗xf5 23. ♖g5

Advantage White in all cases.

Dec-11-07  psmith: Also, 21. ♕xb5 leads to equality.
