Another Lesson in the Jerome Gambit

June 9, 2010

I received so much positive feedback after I presented “The Most Violent Chess Game Ever Played!” that I decided to provide my readers with another Jerome Gambit lesson.  If you are intrigued by the Jerome Gambit I suggest you visit Rick Kennedy’s web page on the gambit here: http://jeromegambit.blogspot.com/ 

Have fun and study at your own risk!

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. Bxf7+ {The questionable and dangerous
Jerome Gambit.} Kxf7 5. Nxe5+ Nxe5 6. Qh5+ Kf8 {This move and Ke6 are both
known to be strong replies and leave black in a technically better but very
dangerous situation.} 7. Qxe5 d6 8. Qg3 {I avoid playing Qf4 as black can
reply Qf6 and suggest a trade of queens or gain a strong attack if I try
9.Qg3 h5!} Nf6 9. O-O Nxe4 10. Qf4+ Nf6 11. b4 {From this position I have
always won.} Bb6 12. Bb2 Bd7 13. Nc3 Bc6? {This move looks strong at first
but black forgot about white’s “b” pawn.} 14. b5! {Black is forced to
retreat and loose time.} Bd7 15. Ne4 Kf7 16. Rae1 {The gambiteer must keep
developing with purpose.} Bxb5? {A tempting mistake. Rf8 would have been
much better.} 17. Bxf6! {The rook on f1 is of no concern as it is my only
piece not involved in attacking black’s king.} gxf6 18. Ng5+ {This is how a
professional uses tactics.} Kg6? {Kg8 would be better.} 19. Ne6 Qd7??
{Black needs to play Qg8 and defend perfectly.} 20. Qg3+ Kh6 21. Qh3+? {I
missed an easy mate in 6 starting with Re4.} Kg6 22. Qg4+ Kh6 23. Qf5 Qf7
24. Re4! {I finally spot the winner.} Bd7 25. Rh4+ Qh5 26. Rxh5# 1-0
