Jun-23-09  zluria: I once played this way as black against this outrageous gambit (4. Nxe5!?), only I played 7. bxc6, transposing into a variation of the scotch. Black's play here seems even stronger. I feel this is the best way to play against such gambits - don't try to refute them, try to defuse them.

  Shams: The Halloween Gambit would almost be playable were it not for 5...Nc6 and 6...Bb4.
Jul-21-12  qqdos: <Shams> I don't think the above game backs up this line as a refutation of the Halloween. For example 13.Qf4? is inferior to 13.Qb4= Qxb4 14.cxb7 Bxb7 15.cxb4 Bxe3. Admittedly a convoluted way of exchanging Queens but not giving Black any worthwhile advantage.
