  skytzo985: the position after 17.gxf6 is one of the ugliest I've ever seen

  whiteshark: Schiller calls this the <Papa-Ticulat Gambit> in his "Gambit Chess Openings", but every other source I've looked up attributes it to Reti. --> Reti vs Maroczy, 1920

  skytzo985: Reti certainly played it long before Papa was born, but Papa analyzed it more heavily than anyone before him and even wrote a book about it, "The Papa Gambit in the French Defense"

  Chessical: <4... f5!?> seems to be a good response to the gambit sidestepping <g4>

if <5. d3> then and example line is

<5...exd3> 6. Bxd3 Nf6 7. Qe2 Nc6 8. Nf3 Bb4

<9. O-O-O> Qe7 10. Rhe1 O-O 11. Bc4 h6 12. Bxe6+ Bxe6 13. Qxe6+ Qxe6 14. Rxe6 Rad8

Mar-11-12  computer chess guy: <Chessical: <4... f5!?> seems to be a good response to the gambit sidestepping <g4>> I think 4. .. f5 is refuted by Bb5+. After for example .. Bd7 6. Bxd7+ Nxd7 7. exf5 exf5 8. O-O, White has a strong lead in development and Black is going to have a hard time castling.

  Chessical: <Computer chess guy> Apologies, but I have entered my comments on the wrong game. My suggestion actually applies to the:

1. e4 e6 2. b3 d5 3. Bb2 dxe4 4. Nc3 Nf6 line

as per:

M Papa vs L Shamburger, 1985
