Chess Openings: Learn to Play the Falkbeer Countergambit!
Many attacking chess players will go to the King’s Gambit with the white pieces. If white plays this, he/she wanting you to accept the gambit, get a lead in development, and then attack your king, checkmate your king, win the game, and go home. I don’t think it is a mistake to take the pawn if you’re prepared, but usually white is very comfortable in these variations. Instead, we aren’t going to sit around and let white attack us. We are going to attack white! Instead of taking the gambit, we are going to offer a gambit to white!
The Falkbeer Countergambit is a very aggressive, dynamic, and sound chess opening. I myself used to be a King’s Gambit player, but I gave it up because of the Falkbeer Countergambit. It was very annoying to play against, and I myself found white’s positions both passive and awkward. I eventually went to the Giuoco Piano, as I count naturally develop without having to face a dangerous opening like the Falkbeer Countergambit. If you’re anything like Garry Kasparov or Mikhail Tal, you don’t want to just be up a pawn and play defense. No, you want to play attacking chess, win the game fast, and go home! We hope you enjoy learning how to play the Falkbeer Countergambit!
