May-19-10  YoungEd: This is an interesting game by Larsen. He doggedly pursues the idea of "I'll keep the gambit pawn and trade off every piece in sight" to work his way to a winning endgame. A move like 15. ♕g3 looks ugly at first but is in keeping with this plan.
Oct-28-11  ColeTrane: I like this opening: 1. f4 ... e5 2. e4 ... why not 2...d5 now and go into falkbeer?

also good is 3...Nf6

  FSR: You gotta love it: a different From from the inventor plays From's Gambit against Larsen.
Sep-05-16  Christoforus Polacco: I know similar positions from Charlick Gambit (1.d4 e5 d6 3.ed B:d6 4.Nf3 Nf6) . Sigfred From was faster than Larsen with development of the figures. Larsen also had isolated, doubled pawns on 'g' file. Why Larsen won ? I don't know :) I don't like 22... B:f5 and 25... Rde8. Passive.
