Boden-Kieseritsky Gambit Does anyone know of an online or paper resource for
this rather rare gambit? (The moves are 1.e4 e5
2.Bc4 Nf6 3.Nf3 Nxe4 4.Nc3; the opening can also
arise from Petroff's Defense.)

the Kibitzer I think you might found a game or two in the Kibitzer's articles on the Urosov Gambit or the Bishop's Opening. Go to Chesscafe.com and click archives.

With the better game. White will complete development by Be3 and O-O-O, and can then put pressure on Black's weak f6-Pawn.

Thank you all for the information provided. mikhail_tal, I ran
across the gambit in a kibitzer article on the Urusov
and found it interesting. But after searching the
internet and my chess books, found very little info
on it. Thanks keiserpaul and dorisia for the lines and
buddie for the transpositions.
