Neo-From to King's Gambit

Anyone interested in my last post will want to check out "From Neo-From to King's Gambit: 1.f4 Nc6 2.Nf3 e5!?" by Aaro Jalas, posted today at It covers not only the Neo-From (which can also arise by 1.f4 e5 2.fxe5 Nc6 3.Nf3) but also King's Gambit lines, including the Adelaide Counter-Gambit. You won't have to worry about the Anti-Pierce in this move order, but it sure makes a great repertoire fit.

I don t know who is Aaro Jalas but his analysis are very very bad, relying mainly on old sources.

I think that more 'relyable' analyses can be found here :

Thank you for the note and the link. Yes, that analysis does seem more up to date and much sharper from the White side -- as you'd expect from a site focused on the Bird. I appreciate the addition.
