Feb-21-05  InspiredByMorphy: Umm 24. ...Qxg2+??

  tpstar: <InspiredByMorphy> Black was on the bordier of insanity so he went postal.

Everything was fine through 8. h4 Qe7, then after 9. a4 Nf6 might improve J Grillon vs D Keith, 1988 but 12 ... c5?! was a bad idea.

Feb-21-05  InspiredByMorphy: <tsptar> I have a question for you regarding the Kings gambit. I value your opinion and would appreciate any input you might have. Ive been studying the Fischer's defense and have noticed that 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3.Nf3 d6 4.h4! sidesteps all previously studied analysis. There are no games in the database with 4.h4 for reference, but the best continuation I can find for black is strangely enough 4. ...d5 5.exd5 Nf6 . However this gives white a chance to defend the pawn via 6.c4 . Therefore maybe the bold 5. ...Qxd5 is better. But it then seems black may have positional complications due to the early queen advance. What do you think of 4.h4 ?

  tpstar: <InspiredByMorphy> 4. h4!? creates a gaping hole at g3 which is easily exploited by 4 ... Nf6 5. Nc3/d3 Nh5 and the threat of 6 ... Ng3 disrupts White's plans, maybe spoiling Kingside castling. Here's an example = Kaltschmidt vs Baroin, 1989
Feb-24-05  InspiredByMorphy: <tpstar> Thanks for the input. As usual, you are correct. Unfortunately Im coming to the conclusion (once again) that the Fischers defense refutes the Kings gambit. In GM Days analysis 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3.Nf3 d6 4.d4 g5 5.h4 g4 6.Ng1 Bh6 7.Nc3 is given as at least equal, but he doesent cover 7. ...Be6 8.Nge2 Qf6 9.g3 fxg3 10.Nxg3 Bxc1 11.Rxc1 and now Nge7 instead of 11. ...h5 Opening Explorer It seems as though if black replaces 7. ...c6 with 7. ...Be6 and 11. ...h5 with 11. ...Nge7 than black has a better developed game than otherwise.

  tpstar: <InspiredByMorphy> I know what you mean, but "refutes" is much too strong. I prefer "gives Black a good game" and "makes White work to regain the gambit Pawn" instead. Even in this 6. Ng1 line, after 6 ... Bh6 technically Black is better developed and owns more Kingside space. So I favor 7 ... c6 preventing any Nd5 or Nb5 nonsense, or else avoiding a possible fork with d5 (Be6 & Nc6), but I also think Black should play ... h5 at some point to consolidate the extra pawn. Consider 7 ... c6 and then 11 ... Qf4 12. Nce2 Qe3 = Opening Explorer
Feb-24-05  InspiredByMorphy: <tpstar> I looked deeper into the variation you spoke of than I had before. I like whites game! I found the following incredible game which encourages me to look at 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3.Nf3 d6 4.d4 g5 5.h4 g4 6.Ng1 again with a different perspective. Fedorov vs Pinter, 1997 GM Day was right after all...
