Soller Gambit Torning 2.dxe5 f6

Richard Torning sent me this Englund Gambit 1.d4 e5 that became a Soller Gambit after 2.dxe5 f6. This is similar to a Blackmar Gambit 1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.f3 in reverse. Diemer added 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 to Blackmar.) Rick Torning wrote: "The Soller Gambit (part of the Englund Gambit complex) is a great way to avoid opening theory. The benefit of a gambit is compensation in the form of superior development, particularly if the opponent's king is stuck in the center. Black got plenty of play for the pawn sac in this game."
