The King's Gambit
From the website www.chesswebsite.com :
"The King’s Gambit is one of the oldest openings in chess and ....... intrigued the greatest chess minds for years ...... such as Spassky, Tal, and Fischer. White, on the second move challenges black’s center and begins an attack at the black kingside ...... Most games are very wide open and have exciting and dynamic lines. For the creative chess player that likes to use exotic combinations and wild sacrifices, the King’s Gambit is the perfect opening."
