acne 7 ( +1 | -1 )

I think you have this posted in two forums... but yes take it! You'll have fun

Why wouldn't you take the pawn?

Practice makes perfect--- you'll probably lose your first games,but then you'll learn more about the opening and start to win yourself.declining is safer,but you get a worse position---at least thats my experience.

The opinion of theorists.... .....is that the King's Gambit Declined is more difficult than the King's Gambit Accepted, so that to begin with you're advised to accept.

consider declining I personally have a much better record with
2...d5 than with 2...exf4.

Check out old games Do a search on www.chessgames.com for kings gambit and look at games won by white in 10 moves or under. All the games I checked were accepted, so it gives you an idea of what not to do :)

No. You can't get an idea by looking at short blunder-featuring games (that's the case if White wins in 10 moves)!

You should make a search, instead, of games played by two players rated, say, at least 2300, and compare the results.

Nowadays the best defences are considered the Modern (2...exf4 3.Nf3 d5), Fischer (2...exf4 3.Nf3 d6 followed by ...g5 and ...h6), and KG declined with 2...Bc5, some complex lines of Nimzowitsch 2...d5 3...c6, and 2...Qh4+ 3.g3 Qe7.

I guess But not making the same blunders is always good.

Brunetti tell me more about 2...Qh4+ 3.g3 Qe7, is it really considered one of the best defences? what is the idea behind it?
p8ntballjunky1 6 ( +1 | -1 )
i guess it is half and half then, i still am unsure!!

thx.for all the help !!

paul valle The idea behind 2. .. Qh4+ 3.g3 Qe7 is that g2-g3 create weakness and that Black has a strong reply on 4.fxe5 ( and that's 4. .. d6 )
