Vienna Gambit[edit | edit source]
The accepted line of the Vienna Gambit leads to a wild game and White gains a full pawn center at the expense of losing the ability to castle allowing Black to make serious inroads into the White Kingside with 4.d4 Qh4+ 5. Ke2. This position overwhelmingly favors white but it must be played very accurately as Black has a strong attack and White has serious King safety issues.
