) 1... e5 (1... d5 2. Nc3 d4 3. Nce2 3... e5 {and again! The right plan in
this position is to play Ng3 quickly and park the Bf1 on a useful square - c4
or b5 - and then maybe Nf3 and/or f4}) 2. f4 d5 3. Nc3 (3. exd5 $1 3... e4 {
Falkbeer Counter-Gambit} (3... c6 {Nimzowitsch Counter-Gambit} 4. Nc3 exf4) 4.
