Cochrane Gambit If there is anyone here who is well versed in the main and/or not-so-main lines of the Cochrane Gambit, could you please pm me. I would like to discuss some variations. Especially after white plays d4 and black is faced with a major choice between several supposedly reasonable alternatives such as g6, c5, and Be7.

Could you give us the starting lines for those of us who aren't familiar with this particular gambit.

The cochrane gambit 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nxe5 d6 4.Nxf7 The Cochrane Gambit. Bronstein brought the line into modern practice in 1973, and the variation has received detailed analysis since, particularly by Latvian and Russian masters. The Cochrane Gambit is perhaps not well known by its name, but is a very playable early assault on the black king's position, which leads to dynamic positions with possibilities for both sides.

Just remebered I saw a game between Yusupow and Kramnik in this variation in which Kramnik won with ease. I guess Yusupov was tired of all the main lines of which he's a great connaiseur.
