C44 Scotch, Goering gambit


  1. Thanks for the Scotch series. I love the Scotch.

  2. Check pronunciation – it's more like 'Guh-ring' than 'Goh-ring'.

  3. The Goering Gambit, AKA The Danish Gambit but a little better

  4. At 7:15, 8 d5 doesn't actually win a knight, due to …Ncd4 (or …Ned4) attacking white's queen. 7 …Ne6 is still a bad line for black (well, it's really 6 …Nc5 that's to blame, as you said), but that's why it's better than 7 …Na6

  5. Can anyone tell me what the intro song is?
