Goring Two Pawn Gambit

The two pawn gambit version of the Goring Gambit is similar to the Danish Gambit. However, the extra moves “Nf3 Nc6” have been played, and this is advantageous to White. Like the Danish Gambit Accepted, White gets two raking bishops in return for giving up two pawns.

Unfortunately, Black can decline the Goring Gambit in a couple of ways with “4…d5” (Danish Gambit Declined) or “4..Nf6” (Ponziani).
