Chess Openings – Jerome Gambit

The Jerome Gambit is a very aggressive opening commonly found in the Giuoco Piano after the moves:

1. e4 e5
2. Nf3 Nc6
3. Bc4 Bc5
4. Bxf7+ Kxf7
5. Nxe5+ Nxe5


  1. Could you cover the Jerome gambit accepted, botez gambit accepted (ECO: F69) too? seems pretty overpowered as in all my years playing it I have reached one whole draw

  2. thechesswebsite; doing it before it was cool.

  3. Lose two pieces for basically no reason and struggle thereafter in hopes of a draw? Seems legit 😂

  4. Wait this was from FOUR YEARS ago?

  5. Never seen it before. I freak-out! and finally the game was draw.

  6. 5:19 why would I play c3 if I can just save my rook with Re1 and white would be up in material?

  7. At 1:25, i move pawn to d4. No matter what black does (take pawn or retreat the bishop), THEN i check with the knight. Not only do i keep the knight for the attack on the king, but my dark square bishop is free to join the attack with the queen. Am i missing something or is d4 a better play?

  8. The opening of this video is completely uninstructive, because almost every black move is something even an 800 would never do.

  9. Dumbest most losing variation is taking the black rook by white Queen. Don't go for it guys

  10. At 1:46 what if king goes to f8. Then queen e5 and then pawn d6?

  11. 10:12 f4f5 check King goes up, queen in front of pawn, whatever he does u may take some knights

  12. Played this with my 3 weeks old Nephew i thought i can trick him with this gambit. But sadly efen he knows after Queen's Check to the king he played pawn to g6.

  13. 1:48 isn't d4 Bxd4 Bg1 better? wins the queen with an x ray attack right?

  14. Hi Kevin, hope you are doing well! Congratulations for all your great videos. Just a note, at the end of the video, when you are discussing the blackburn shilling, I think there is a little mistake: if black pond e6, queen should take the rook, not the pond… 😉

  15. I feel like the Jerome gambit would be an opening for black 😂

  16. The problem with QxRh8 is that you can trap the Queen with Nf6, b6/b5, Bb7

  17. is that a way u show a gambit line, "hoping opponent would make mistake??" Just show the best moves for both sides

  18. Wtf, I’ve done something similar before without knowing

  19. Basically the Leroy Jenkins!!!! opening of chess!

  20. This is INSANE, with this gambit i went from 1500 rating to 2000, thank you so much!

    Jerome Boateng

  22. Wait is he counter attacking the counter attack of fried liver attack

  23. Don’t lie no one thought that’s why they called it jeromes gambit

  24. I don’t understand why you don’t just take the bishop before check, is it just because it gives them a chance to move with tempo?

  25. If king comes out to f6 to defend Ne5, why not slink Q to h4 and take their queen?

  26. so, when I started playing chess, many people have been telling me, "yo, your a gambit!" and so here I am…
