  Sneaky: Black is down a whole pawn, in a correspondence game.
Jan-11-04  technical draw: Wasn't this opening once called the Danish Gambit?

  Benzol: <td> It certainly was. Is it now classed as a subvariation of the Center Game?
Nov-18-04  InspiredByMorphy: Wheres the win?
Sep-16-05  reendo21: same question...Why is this a win for Black??

  Sneaky: People, he's DOWN A PAWN! Where's the compensation? Nowhere. In a correspondence game you might as well be down a knight.

People will resign correspondence games when they haven't lost any material, just because they feel that their opponent has their pieces better placed. It's a good strategy if you are playing 10 games at once--resign the ones you think are hopeless so you can dedicate more time to the games that you might actually win or draw.

Feb-16-06  gunsan: Why play a gambit and then resign because you are a pawn under? Why play a gambit at all? Make no sense to me.
Nov-14-07  parmetd: I am a bit confused myself the whole point of the gambit was to get more active pieces as black hasn't finished developing. In this case i don't think the pawn was worth that but its definitely not lost for white has received some compensation.

  fredthebear: The reliable FSR, a former correspondence player himself, stated in another post that during correspondence games, one player might withdraw from the game for reasons unrelated to chess.
