C55 Italian Game: Two Knights Defense. De Riviere Gambit

C55 Italian Game: Two Knights Defense. De Riviere Gambit

Since I started posting my games and maybe looking at them a bit closer than before, it has been interesting to see how many different openings and variations I have really faced over the years. This particular opening variation I had never before even heard of, until I did some studying, did I learn what it is called. Truth to be told though, the game doesn't follow the normal move order of this variation. The normal order is 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.c3. This has not been the first time nor will it be the last time that the move order in my games doesn't follow the usual move order. As you can see, it is another loss as I'm trying to balance things out. If I would post all the games I have notations of, I would be slightly on the plus side but maybe not in the ratio that you see my games here in this blog. The analysis for this game was updated January 26th 2015.
