Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-23-15  themindset: A very instructive game with a nice finish.
Apr-23-15  ToTheDeath: Yes, my favorite gambit against the Winawer. Black was strongly punished for his loss of time in the opening (12...Qf6 etc.)
Apr-24-15  themindset: Yes, I play this gambit. Does it have a name? Here is a link to all the games in this line, white wins every single one:

Apr-24-15  disasterion: <Does it have a name?>

It's the Alekhine gambit (presumably named from Alekhine vs Nimzowitsch, 1931)

Apr-24-15  ToTheDeath: It's a very good gambit and not that well known at the club level. I've had excellent results with it.
Apr-24-15  themindset: So upon Nge2 it becomes the Alekhine gambit. I suppose the f5 line could be considered the Alekhine Gambit Accepted.

  keypusher: 6....f5 is too cooperative. Black can spoil the fun with 5....Bxc3+ 6.Nxc3 Nc6 or just 5....Be7 6.Nxe4 Nf6.
