15. N-Q514. BxN13........P-Q3Well, learning curve. I have a devastating counter should black not go for the gambit to begin with, as they think the supporting pawn helps them command that center pawn on the board . . . only within a few moves I knock it out. No one on the quest board seems to understand it and follow through to this point. And I run into you, here of all places, and find someone to help teach me. Imagine how surprised I was.Maybe not, but I'm flying by the seat of my pants here. LOL! You seem to know the ins-and-outs of the gambit. I'm trying to think it out on the board, and I'm a little intimidated.11. B-K510..... N-KB3

After my eleventh move: B-K5. Are we on the same page? Will check from time to time.
I think your 11th move released the pressure too soon.
Don't think you have enough compensation for your 2 pieces with Queens off the board.
12 RxQ, of course.
My philosophy when playing against the King's Gambit is to take
some, but usually not all of the material offered....but you keep offering more!!!
