Danish Gambit: New Annotated Chess Opening with Computer Practice on www.jrobichess.com
I have added an annotated opening for the Danish Gambit with computer practice and Grandmaster examples on the main site at http://www.jrobichess.com.
The Danish Gambit was one of my first opening videos on YouTube. I plan on creating interactive web pages for all previous opening videos as time goes forward.
The gambit line is usually attributed to the Danish player Severin From. He essayed it in an 1867 Paris tournament. The Danish Gambit used to be an extremely popular opening amongst some of the greatest grandmasters of all time. While rarely seen at the top levels of chess today, it's surprise value can be amazing when used in blitz play or even club play.
