Default Cochrane Gambit, two game variations

Below you can find the 2 games with some comments on some of the moves.


I have choosen 2 games won by black (in both games white is Ballon, F) even
though my Cochrane Gambit gamebase contains more winning games for white.
If you play this opening, make sure you don't sit back as white trying to
develop pieces. It's an edge on play to justify your choice of opening.

Both players have to beware an oppertunity missed or lesser move made, but
black only has to patiently defy everything white can throw on the board
where white has to avoid lines which can eventualy turn into a dead end
(second game) or are not sharp enough (first game)

For all who would like to try it this opening out, especially with a
correspondence game which gives you enough time to review moves, I can
assure you that taking that bit of time to find the sharp of the edge will
be mighty fun.

Best regards,
Fernando


--------------------------------

Ballon,F - Scheffner,A [C42]
corr., 61 corr., 61, 1989


1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nxe5 d6 4.Nxf7 Kxf7
5.d4 c6 6.Nc3 Nbd7 7.e5

Premature, e5 does not do much accept being moved and force black to counter
it.
[7.Qf3]

7...dxe5 8.dxe5 Qe7 9.Bc4+ Ke8 10.0-0??

As this is still the opening fase, white now gives black a pawn back, making
it 2 pawns for a knight and a pawn. Not only that, as you can see, black
managed to savely place his king behind protecting pieces.
White can now only loose.
[10.f4]

10...Nxe5 11.Re1 Bg4 12.Qd2 Nfd7 13.f4 Qc5+ 14.Kh1 Qxc4 15.fxe5 Bf5 16.Qf2
Qe6
0-1



-------------------


Ballon,F - Thunert,M [C42]
corr., W 63 corr., W 63, 1990


1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nxe5 d6 4.Nxf7 Kxf7
5.d4 Be6 6.Nc3 g6 7.Qf3

Not the best move
[7.d5]

7...Nbd7

and now black blundered with a "remembered" line move. (see game above)

8.Bg5
[8.d5 Bg4 9.Qg3]

8...c5 9.d5 Bg4 10.Qg3 h6 11.Bf4 Ne5 12.h3 Bc8 Bd7

would have been good enough with somewhat more future possibilities

13.Be3

White is playing on quite a small piece of the board with black pieces all
over the place. Be2 maybe adding some force or Bd2/Qe3 trying to look for a
different place (ie Queen's side) to continue.
What you also should see is that white's options to apply pressure have run
out. That is definitly a waste to use Cochrane Gambit.

13...Qa5

Black either thinks white is done, or missed a move to give white a goodbye
gift.
[13...Nh5 14.Qh2 Indeed, a sleeping place where white's Q may search for
peas under matrasses.]

14.0-0-0 b5

black again does not think he has worries on the King's side

15.f4 b4 16.Nb5

a pity, white gives "his winning" game away in one silly move.

16...Nxe4
0-1
