Here is a Reversed Jerome Gambit game from the highly creative and always aggressive Philidor 1792. For those who believe that the Jerome is "not playable" - what will they think now?

AmirKenchenbayev  - Philidor 1792
Russia Central Federal District vs Team Kazakhstan
3 d/move, team match, 2015

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Bc5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bc4 Bxf2+

Reversed Jerome Gambit!

5.Kxf2 Nxe4+ 6.Nxe4 d5 7.Bxd5

An improvement over 7.Nxe5 dxc4 8.d4  from another reversed Jerome Gambit, guest88 - Philidor 1792,, 2014 (0-1, 37).

7...Qxd5 8.d3 0-0 

9.Rf1 Nc6 10.Kg1 Bg4 11.h3 Bh5 12.Qe1 f5 13.Nc3 Qd6

14.a3 Rae8 15.Qh4 Bxf3 16.Rxf3 Nd4 17.Rf2 Qb6 18.Kh1 f4

White is still better, but all of Black's pieces are in play, while White's Bishop and Queen's Rook are still at home.

It is not a good time for White to relax. Imperceptibly, he does.

19.b4 Nf5

Suddenly Black is winning! His most blatant threat (besides attacking the Queen) is ...Ng3+, cutting support off for White's Rook.

White can try the counter-attack 20.Nd5, but after 20...Qd4 both of White's Rooks are vulnerable, and after 21.c3 Ng3+ 22.Kg1 Qxd5 White is up material, with better development and more threats.

20.Qg4 Qxf2 21.Nd5 Qd4 White resigned

Black wins the Knight and remains with the better position and continued threats.
