Is it officially baptised or is it still unnamed? I discovered it myself during a blitz session, and I got pretty good results, but this was with considerable help from the opponents. Has anyone else here played it with serious intentions? Currently there are two games in the GK database, both White wins, but I think this is unfair, as in both games the Black player blundered a piece rather quickly, so there wasn't any real struggle. Do you think it's sound or even crazier than the Budapest gambit?
29 ( +1 | -1 ) It looks sort of like a Benko/Budapest cross. Perhaps reached through 1.d4 Nf6 2. c4 e5 (the Budapest) 3. d5 b5?
It doesn't appear at all in the chessgames.com database, so it may not have a name. That same database says that declining the Budapest is really bad for White, but the normal move after 3.d5 is ... Bc5.
57 ( +1 | -1 ) My mistakeI forgot the obvious, the move order. It is indeed a declined Budapest gambit followed into another gambit. Here is the move order: 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e5 3.d5 b5. At the time I was playing blitz, I was rather oblivious to normal moves like kewms's suggestion 3..Bc5, but rather wanted to keep on gambiting. If it doesn't have a name does any one have any suggestions what we should call it? I propose the name Racketeer's gambit, as it looks like something played under the influence of strong beverages.
33 ( +1 | -1 ) hohohoWell that is rather funny. It looks pretty fun for BL there. But I thought surely this will be something New, and games pop up. How about if we continue with WT declines with b3 and BL plays g5!? ! ? Then I Think we have something new. Trouble is I would Like to play Stendhars Gambit here, but not so much to play mine ... }8-)
