Falkbeer Countergambit

The Falkbeer Countergambit is one of the most attacking openings for black. It is a direct counter attack against the King’s Gambit played by White. One of the key things to remember in the Falkbeer counter-gambit is king safety. If you like chaos and you like to play aggressively then this is a great defence if you are playing against someone who favours the King’s Gambit.

In this game Falkbeer (playing Black) met his match against the famed master Adolf Anderssen.

👍 What winning move did White play here ?
