Default Defeating Kings Gambit - Help Request !!!!

Hello,

I am playing black and my opponents move into the Kings Gambit as follows:

1.e4 c5 2. f4

Is there a particular line I can follow to is best with dealing with this
situation ?

I have books, but I do not want to have to memorize many lines

Thank you,

GB


Hi,

Whatever may follow after 1.e4 c5, it will be no Kings Gambit any
more. 2.f4 here is the Grand Prix Attack.
Though I'm no Sicilian expert, AFAIK this move order is not exact, as
usually White enters the Grand Prix Attack via 1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 xxx
(whatever black likes to play) 3.f4

The Reason is 2...d5, after which black has an easy game. 2 Examples
for that a

a) White does not capture on d5:

[Event "FSIMB May"]
[Site "Budapest HUN"]
[Date "2003.??.??"]
[White "Boguszlavszkij, J"]
[Black "Grafl, F"]
[Round "3"]
[Result "0-1"]
[WhiteElo "2280"]
[BlackElo "2317"]
[ECO "B21"]

1. e4 c5 2. f4 d5 3. Nc3 d4 4. Nce2 Nc6 5. d3
e5 6. g3 f5 7. exf5 Qd5 8. Kf2 Qxh1 9. Nf3
Nf6 10. Neg1 Ng4+ 11. Ke1 Nxh2 12. Qe2 Nxf1 13. Kxf1
Bxf5 14. fxe5 Bh3+ 15. Ke1 Qg2 16. Nxh3 Qxh3 17. Bf4
Qh1+ 18. Kf2 Qxa1 19. Nd2 Qh1 20. Qg4 Qd5 21. Ne4
h5 22. Qh3 Nxe5 0-1

b) White plays 3.exd5

[Event "9th Open Metalis"]
[Site "Bizovac CRO"]
[Date "2002.??.??"]
[White "Mravunac, B"]
[Black "Sax, G"]
[Round "1"]
[Result "0-1"]
[WhiteElo "2089"]
[BlackElo "2584"]
[ECO "B21"]

1. e4 c5 2. f4 d5 3. exd5 Nf6 4. Nc3 Nxd5 5. Nxd5
Qxd5 6. Qf3 Qd6 7. Bb5+ Nd7 8. Ne2 e6 9. b3
Be7 10. Bb2 O-O 11. Bd3 f5 12. O-O-O Bf6 13. g4
Bxb2+ 14. Kxb2 Nb6 15. gxf5 exf5 16. Rhg1 a5 17. Rg3
Rf7 18. Rdg1 a4 19. Qh5 axb3 20. cxb3 c4 21. Bb1
cxb3 22. axb3 Qxd2+ 23. Bc2 Qb4 24. Rd3 Nc4+ 25. Kb1
Ra1+ 0-1

But to make that clear: The game is razor-sharp, especially after
3.exd5, so there's no guarantee for a win :-)

1.e4 c5 2.f4 e5 is a kind of King's Gambit Declined. If play continues
3.Nf3 exf4 it transposes to the King's Gambit Accepted. If White now
plays 4.Be2 it transposes into a tournament game I lost in 1997 with
the move order 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3.Be2 c5 4.Nf3 and 0-1 in 16. (I was
having a very bad day.)

Hello Andreas,

Yes, I agree with u it is the Grand Prix Attack and I will lookup the d5
move, so I do not get hung up on this irritating opening again
