This is an invention by Per Sörenfors. After the initial shock of the b4-move, there follows 2…Bxb4 3.e5!
Some IDEAS: This move is directed against 3…d6 which looses a piece. Whit has occupied e5, the Bishop on c8 is worse than in the normal French lines and White gets the b-file. After Black’s play …f6, White’s eventual Bb2 will pressure Black’s position, and threatens Qg4 with pressure against g7 etc. After …g6, follows h4. White also gains tempo on Black’s bishop on b4, with moves like c3 and then d4. White’s King often ends up on f1
Some LINES from Sörenfors: A) 3…d6? 8.Qg4 +- B) 3…f6? 4.Bb2 Nc6 5.a3 Be7 6.d4 C) 3…Nc6 4.c3! Be7 5.d4 d6 6.f4 D) 3…d5 4.c3 Be7 5.Qg4! g6 6.d4 c5 7.Bd3! cd 8.cd Bb4+ 9.Kf1 E) 3…Be7 4.Qg4 g6 5.d4 d5 6.h4 h5 7.Qg3 c5 8.Ld3! cd 9.Lxg6! +- F) 3… Bf8! And then …d6! Seems like the best move (=+)
49 ( +1 | -1 ) don't understand gambitI don't understand this gambit. Usually the player losing material gains initiative. It looks like this case black wins a pawn and has better development. Look at your line c. All white has are pawns moved. Black can blow up white's center because he has the initiative. I think black would be better if he wasn't up a pawn. If black is better and also a pawn ahead then I think already white is lost with best play.
92 ( +1 | -1 ) Line Dlooks like a fairly normal french position, except that White's b-pawn has mysteriously left the board, and the black bishop is placed on e7, when it might be better on f8. So, why not follow classical french rules? For example, 4... Bf8 is probably better than 4... Be7, 5... g6 seems less precise than 5... Kf8, and even still, 7... Nc6! instead of 7... cxd4 leaves White in an awkward position as Black threatens 8... cxd4 9. cxd4 Nb4. In fact, Black's assets are increased as he can now play ...Qa5 with pressure against the c-pawn as well now that the b-pawn has left the pawn chain; for example, 8. Nf3 Qa5 threatening 9... cxd4, when White's only way of meeting Black's threat is 9. Bd2, but then 9... Qb6 gains a tempo (Qb2) and leaves Black a pawn up with a better position.
To me, this seems like an extremely dubious version of the Wing Gambit.
55 ( +1 | -1 ) another stupid gambit-post by paulvalleThanks for the response guys, I just thought I'd share some crazy gambit, which is not mentioned in the books, not even in Schiller's (crappy) books.
I'll look at your lines at some later date.
I do not play this gambit my self, nor do I recomend it (, although the inventor plays, and he is rated +2000.... I think). I prefer another gambit agaist the French Defense; the Reti Variation. Anyway, I do not mind playing a few games with this opening, but not right now, I'm on hollidays, and I do not have access to computers on a regular basis.
