Adelaide Countergambit 1.e4 e5 2.f4 Nc6 3.Nf3 f5! (#1)
The Adelaide Countergambit is a variation endorsed by the late GM Tony Miles and heavily analyzed by Matthias Wahls on ChessBase. We recommend it as a "refutation" to the King's Gambit. The position can be reached after the following moves: 1.e4 e5 2.f4 Nc6 3.Nf3 f5! Here is a personal game of mine I played in the Miami Open in 2007 Attached are some sample lines which could be reached should you attempt to play the countergambit yourself. We will be analyzing more of these lines in the forthcoming weeks. Stay tuned!
