The Daily Review, Sunday, August 13, 1967
The King's Gambit in the hands of an attacking player presents the defender with difficult problems to solve whether or not White's Pawn offer is accepted. The following game illustrates how easily Black can go wrong by opening up the position too soon.
White: Everett McNally, Black: Lawrence Vadnais.
2.f4 d6 (a)
4.Bc4 (b) Be7
6.c3 (c) Bg4
7.d4 Nxe4 (d)
8.fxe5 dxe5 (e)
9.Bxf7+ Kxf7 (f)
10.Nxe5+ Kg8 (g)
11.Qxg4 Nf6 (i)
(a) Considered inferior to 2…Bc5, but virtually "unbooked."
