King's Gambit

Black to move:

The King's gambit was a popular Openings in the 19th century. It is considered to be the most romantic of Openingss, since White sacrificies his f-pawn in order to launch a quick attack on the black king. However, this Openings is rarely played on the master level, since the missing f-pawn proves to be a major weakness for White once the initial attack is over.
