Jerome Gambit I am investigating the Jerome Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.Bxf7+ Kxf7 5.Nxe5+ etc). If anyone has played this line, or had this line played against them, please show me the games. Many Thanks!

Ive neverheard of it before but it sounded interesting and i found this quite interesting while i was playing against the computer, it looks like black has a significant advantage then with D4 white can reclaim a piece back, however two options can shift the advantage. If black moves his knight back to E5 the queen can move to D5 placing the king in check and then take the knight and gain control. However if black moves his other knight to F6 he maintains control.

Im not very good at analysing lines but i found the D4 move by white useful after the exchange that seemed to favour black.

I have defended against it.... ..as black, in my first tournament. It is a terrible opening for white, if black knows what he is doing and plays carefully it will be 0-1...the sacrifice is too much for too little. Though if you are playing someone who you know is a poor defender or is a weak player in general then you may score quickly with this commando attack...

Jerome Gambit Superblunder, could you show us your game? I know the opening is weak - it is best played as a way for a stronger player to give "odds" to a weaker player. Your game would be a good object lesson to rash commandos, and a good chess lesson to beginners who might otherwise be taken by surprise. I saw a game recently, for example, where Black met 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.Bxf7+ with 4...Kf8?? Inquiring minds want to see!!
Thanks.

Jerome Gambit A recent Jerome Gambit win of mine -- nobody will mistake the opening for the Ruy Lopez, or me or my opponent for Masters, but it was a fun blitz game and I'm likely to repeat the opening again one of these days...

Anyone else have a game to share?
