Urusov Gambit

The Urusov Gambit is a White gambit opening in the Double King Pawn Games. White offers the "d4’ pawn and does not recapture. Black may decline by transposition into the Two Knight’s Defence, or may retain the pawn whereby White gets piece activity and a more attacking position as compensation for the gambit pawn.
