  3. Englund's Gambit games

Hello! Please post some interesting games of the Englund Gambit!

Bye!

@ap87 the Englund Gambit is bad and has been refuted.
lichess.org/RJBnRYPh

Albin's gambit 1 d4 d5 2 c4 e5 and Budapest Gambit 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e5 are better: black benefits more form 1...d5 and 1...Nf6 than white benefits from 2 c4.

I am waiting for the first "stem game" with 8. ... Dc1#

SCNR

I usually make 1 d4 e5 2 dxe5 f6 3 exf6 Nxf6

@ap87 losing a pawn for no reason. What's wrong with the normal 1.d4 d5 ?

Well you have a developing avantage though

@ap87 not significant enough to justify losing the pawn. What's wrong with developing normally? e.g. 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Be7

nothing!
