The King’s Gambit was the fashionable opening of the 19th century. On move two, such great combinatory players as Paul Morphy (1837–1884) and Adolf Anderssen (1818–1879) were willing to sacrifice the f-pawn, so that after the opening of the play which follows 2... exf4 they would be able to obtain an advantage in development and then mount an assault with their pieces. Unforgettable masterpieces such as Anderssen’s “Immortal Game” were created with the King’s Gambit. But also more recent players such as Boris Spassky and David Bronstein (1924–2006) have won games with White.
