|QUEEN'S GAMBIT - Irregular Defences|
The Albin Counter-Gambit
Black declines White's QBP gambit but advances a
King's Pawn counter gambit to
K4(e5), content to exchange it for quick
development and free bishop diagonals (a mirror of the
Falkbeer). Introduced by Romanian grandmaster
Adolf Albin (1848-1920), his 3.PxKP..P-Q5 plan
usually favours White but allows Black open attacking play.
