A king gambit I recently played. Fell apart once I gave away my knight but thought it to be an interesting opening sequence. I think 16 Nf5 check was a winning move

    White was winning indeed. BTW 10.a3?:)

    Tempo, I had a chuckle about your Lucena comment. I like to throw away a pawn most games just to give the rook some air 8)

    I'll take a closer look at a3. Sometimes I play this type of move so I can tuck my bishop into a2 away from the knight and still controlling the long diagonal. I believe a e5 pawn push as somepoint would be advantageous as well.

    hmm. it appears upon reflection that 10 a3 was running from something that wasn't chasing me.

    A shame of a game to lose. I had a beautiful big center.
