In this video lesson, GM Igor Smirnov shares with you a secret opening variation in the Bishop’s Opening that will give you a crushing and winning attack in no time, even against experienced opponents!

It is similar to the King’s Gambit, which happens after the following moves: 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nc6 3.f4. We can say that it’s an improved version of the King’s Gambit for two reasons: 1) Black cannot play d5 because of our c4-bishop 2) We can use the f-file to attack the f7-square along with our bishop on c4.

This variation is also known as the Bishop’s Gambit from the King’s Gambit Accepted variation, which has the following move order: 1.e4 e5 2. f4 exf4 3.Bc4.

  1. Hummmm. Not sure many opponents would make these specific moves.

  2. My feels say Qg7+, king has to go to e6 or e8, rook e2+.
    If e6 it's a smothered mate after knight f6, if it moves forward you can just keep attacking with even the dark bishop and keep all tension.
