    Question Belgrade Gambit

    I came across this interesting opening recently.

    1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. d4 exd4 5. Nd5

    I thought to myself, "Great, I'll use this in my next tournament". Having played a few blitz games with good results, I'm left scratching my head. White doesn't really seem to get that much for the pawn, and apart from blocking the d-pawn, the knight on d5 doesn't appear to be threatening anything.

    1. Is this opening nonsense?

    2. Nonsense or not, what is White trying to achieve in this position?

    This gambit is no good. If you want to generate instant play, try the Scotch or even the Piano (which isn't a gambit but has teeth nevertheless).
