Take My Pieces, But Take My Word, Too

Sometimes the recipient of a gambit is skeptical. Free material? Why not grab all I can get?? The gamiteer adds: It will cost you.

In the following game Black happily receives a Bishop and then a pawn. When offered a Knight, he scarcely resists the temptation.

White then shows that his "generosity" should have been taken seriously, as well.

Philidor 1792 - NN

1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nf6 3.Bxf7+ Kxf7 4.Nf3 Nxe4 5.Nc3

Combining Jerome Gambit ideas with the Boden-Kieseritzky Gambit!

I have only seen this once, mentioning the idea in a note in an earlier post about an earlier Philidor 1792 game, referencing Jirotka,S - Super Expert, 1990; but The Database is incomplete concerning 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nf6 3.Bxf7+.

We have seen 5.Nxe5+ in a number of White's games: Philidor 1792  -guest2044,, 2013 (1-0, 45); Philidor 1792 - guest213,, 2013 (1-0, 41); Philidor 1792 - guest564,, 2013 (1-0, 56); and Philidor 1792 - guest45,, 2013 (1-0, 28). 

5...Nxc3 6.dxc3 d6 

A typical mistake against the B-K.

7.Nxe5+ Ke6 8.0-0 Kxe5 

I was not being frivolous, thinks White, believe me.

9.Qh5+ Ke6 10.Re1+ Kd7 11.Bg5 Black resigned
