Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-27-07  gambitfan: A very nice Latvian Gambit!
Dec-29-07  popski: 7.g4!? looks like a good move!
Jun-29-09  Peter Nemenyi: Black makes the game interesting with 8...d5, which looks like a blunder letting White take a pawn off for nothing, but lets Black overcome his inferiority in development and initiate sharp play. Presumably Black preferred losing a pawn in the most active way to trying to hold on to it in dismal lines such as 8...Qe6 9. d5! Qe7.

  OBIT: In his book on the Latvian Gambit, Koston calls 7. g4!? an attempt at an outright refutation of 6...Bf5. He considers Black best response to be 8...Nc6 9. d5 Ne5 10. Nxe5 Qxe5 11. Qe2 O-O-O 12. Be3 a6 13. O-O-O with White slightly better.
