Aug-27-05  knightfever: Very funny ! Would be 5. Nd2 better ?
Mar-28-06  Necessary Truths: 5. Nd2 and the B on f4 hangs.
Aug-26-06  Youjoin: I think 5.Bd2 is the less autodestructive move.

  al wazir: The losing move is 4. Bf4. White should just develop with 4. Nc3 and let the ♙ go, or if he's feeling gutsy, maybe play 4. Qd5.
Oct-09-06  RChambers: bf4 is fine...after qxb2 white needs to play 6. nc3 as 6.bc3 fails to bb4,qd2,bxc3,qxc3, qc1#

6. Nc3? Qxa1+.

  FSR: The main line runs 5.Bd2 Qxb2 6.Nc3 (6.Bc3?? Bb4 7.Qd2 Bxc3 8.Qxc3 Qc1#, or 7.Bxb4 Nxb4 and White is crushed) Bb4 (6...Nb4 7.Nd4 c6 is occasionally seen) 7.Rb1 Qa3 8.Rb3 Qa5 9.a3 Bxc3 (9...Bxa3? 10.Rxa3! Qxa3 11.Nb5 ) 10.Bxc3 Qc5. 5.Nc3!? is also known (the Spanish GM Bellon has played it, for one), when Black can choose between 5...Qxf4!? 6.Nd5 with great complications, or 5...Qxb2 6.Bd2 transposing to the main line.

Black has a bad game after 4.Nc3 Nxe5 5.e4, when White is ahead in development. 4.Qd5!? f6 5.exf6 Nxf6 6.Qb3 leaves Black with dubious compensation for the sacrificed pawn. Basically the Englund Gambit sucks, although it's fun to play in blitz games.

Apr-10-09  blacksburg: this exact game has happened to me in blitz. i never played 4.Bf4 again.
Aug-29-13  Skakalec: I played the exactly same game some 30+ years ago. Unfortunately, I was white (-:.
