Bryntse - Smith [A03]
corr SWE/K corr SWE/K, 1967

This opening tip will deal very briefly with a rather unknown Swedish gambit. It's inventor A. Bryntse (ChessBase has no info on him, so he may still be alive as far as I know.) was/is a quite strong corr-player, for instance, he won the Swedish correspondence Championship in 1972. And his gambit of queen for two minor pieces, certainly has the look of good compensation even if it may be a bit risky in practical play. I'm too lazy to analyze it for you. But below you'll find the 12 games available with this gambit, it's entirely up to you to investigate further... 1.f4 this was Bryntse's preferred move order. [But 1.e4 c5 2.f4 d5 3.Nf3 is a more likely way to get to this position.] 1...d5 2.Nf3 c5 3.e4 Diagram

Fans of the Grand Prix Attack may find some inspiration here though. Nf3 is certainly more provoking than 3.Nc3. 3...dxe4 [3...d4 4.Ng1 Que?

[When I mentioned Brynte's gambit to a danish GM in my club team, Henrik Danielsen, his first reaction was: "Why not play a Fajarowich gambit with an extra tempo?". And indeed, why not? Last time I spoke with him, he said that he'd scored quite well with 4.Ne5 on the ICC... 4.Ne5!? Nf6 5.d3 exd3 (5...Nbd7 6.Qg4?? Nxg4 0-1 rickyII-Lyubimov/localhost 1998 (6)) 6.Bxd3 g6 7.Nxf7 Kxf7 8.Bxg6+ is a trap to remember, in blitz it will surely have a lot of victims.]
