Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-21-05  King John 5: That is a fun opening to use. I use to use it online a lot but went to using Ruy Lopez as I learned more about openings. The Knight sac gives white a great king side attack. If white can keep the attack going and not let black use the material advantage then white should win in my opinion.
Nov-24-05  Knight13: I don't know why the sac of the Knight on f3 gives white so many victories in this so-called King's Gambit. But if it wins, then it's good, right?
Feb-09-10  backrank: This is a stunning game. White sacs a piece in the opening, and despite the exchange of the Queens and some minor pieces, Black seems totally helpless after move 16.
