Goring Gambit

The Goring gambit is a good choice for beginners to play attacking chess.
1. e2-e4 e7-e5
2. Ng1-f3 Nb8-c6
3. d2-d4 e5xd4
4. c2-c3 d4xc3 accepting the gambit pawn. It is also possible to decline with 4..... d7-d5
5. Nb1xc3 Bf8-b4
6. Bf1-c4 d7-d6
7. 0-0 White is ahead in development and has open lines for attack. Plan for White will be to attack the f7 pawn by Ng5, Qb3, etc.
