The Staunton Gambit

White opens up the game by playing the popular and lively Staunton Gambit instead of the safe developing lines of 2.P-QB4 or 2.P-KKt3 for positional play. Englishman Howard Staunton, the strongest player of the 1840s, used it to exploit the weakness created in Black's king's sector by ..P-KB4. W-Alt.
