  DiceToThat: What is wrong with this position? I wouldn't resign; I'd play Nf6 and let the bloodbath begin. It looks like it would be good times. What's the worst that could happen? You lose a pawn? Ooooooooo...
Nov-09-04  clocked: <DiceToThat> Yes, but that makes two pawns down.
Nov-09-04  samvega: three -- won't the f2 be lost immediately?
Nov-30-04  fasting: funny coincidence! Check out how T. Plath plays 1. NC3, F5 - K De Smet vs T Plath, 1989
12 moves as well... same gambit!?

  ajile: It's like a From's Gambit reversed so it's potentially very dangerous for Black. Every Dutch player knows to not play 1.f5 after 1.NC3

However if White delays NC3 after 1.D4 then Black can continue with a good Stonewall with f5 since White doesn't have the c4 move as a battering ram. So for example: 1.d4 d5 2.NC3 f5 and now White will have to play f3 in order to force e4.

May-02-07  WarmasterKron: <<ajile> Every Dutch player knows not to play 1...f5 after 1.Nc3>

Rubbish. 2.e4 e5 and Black has a King's Gambit with colours reversed, with White's extra move being largely irrelevant. Those on the receiving end of the KG are rarely in a rush to play ...Nc6.

  acirce: "Losing
Is an art, like everything else.
I do it exceptionally well."

The art of losing isn't hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my mother's watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn't a disaster.

---Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan't have lied. It's evident
the art of losing's not too hard to master
though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

  whiteshark: The whole thing from 7.Ne4 onwards looks fishy.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: Fishy II: <1.Nc3 f5 2.e4 e5>!? transposes to a reversed King's Gambit with a Vienna touch. After <3.exf5 Nf6 4.g4 Bc5 5.g5 0-0 6.gxf6 Qxf6> you have a <Black Muzio <<<>>>>

Well, this position is known since Falkbeer vs Anderssen, 1851


Aug-27-08  Whitehat1963: Obviously, white was much better at poetry than chess.

  profK: Surely 7.Be2 Ng7 8.h4 looks OK....

  andrewjsacks: Apparently, deceased poets play very odd openings.
May-25-16  RookFile: 7. Ne4 is bizarre. Instead, 7. Nge2 and Ng3 would be similar to how black behaves in the related From's Gambit.
