It is the summer time and the best method to cool down your body is to play a game of chess. My opponent who plays the white pieces is a IM but he is not playing well today as you can see there are many holes in his game. We both start our first few moves in the standard fashion. Then the situation on the chess board starts to change after he has made a very strange move by exposing my “left flange”. I know what he wants and I also can see there is a big hole in his game! The game continues and I further solidify my position on the chess board by bringing out my left knight into the game…
The last few moves are the one that really secure my victory against this player who ranks higher than me. He resigns after I move my knight…
When the first time I look at the Danish Gambit chess opening I was simply shocked that how on earth can someone even thinks of this masterpiece? When you see this opening in the first time you will really think that your opponent must be out of his mind by giving out piece after piece but before you realize that a trap is waiting for you at the end you are almost done! Nobody can deny that danish gambit is the work of a genius, we lost pieces at the beginning but at last we are the winner, that is the beauty which hides behind Danish Gambit.
The mindset of the Danish Gambit player:
Get ready to lost as many pieces as you need in order to achieve the final glory.
The mindset of your opponent:
He thinks you are silly but before he realizes his mistakes he is over!
The mindset of the creator:
He comes from a culture and civilization which is willing to give up everything just to achieve the ultimate victory.
We really need to practice this formation for at least 100 times before we can master it, we also need to take a risk and prepare for a quick lost if we have decided to use this Gambit as our commonly use chess opening. Once we have mastered the Danish Gambit we will see lots of weaknesses and holes in our opponent game during the match which we can then capitalize and easily defeat even the strongest opponent on earth such as the Russian or the US player!
