Wonderful Weird World of gambits

I am sure this gambit has a name but I wonder if we managed to stay within theory for more than three moves?

Look for "Gibbins-Weidenhagen Gambit" or "Poisoned Spike" if you want to be amused by a semi crazy gambit. You might even find a game played by Humphrey Bogart using the gambit. Fun Stuff!


  1. Did Black resign on move 4 or is this just for illustrative purposes and that came later? I think we're in "book" until Nxf2 but that's just a little too aggressive for me!

  2. Black took a even more desperate approach after the daring Nxf2. It would have been waste of internet space to post the full came.
