IF White knew their openings and basic chess principles, this probably would not have happened!

1.f4 Bird opening is a fine opening but White needs to be careful.

1.f3 Barnes Opening is just a bad opening  and fools mate can follow eg  1.f3 e5 2.g4 Qh4#

1.e4 e5 2.f4 the Kings Gambit, is another fine opening for White, if White is aware and understands and is careful to guard against the potential king weakness f4 brings.

There are many other "hoody/ie" blunders of similar proportions... How about this classic opening error hoodie blunder:

Djordjevic vs Kovacevic
Bela Crkva (1984)
Trompowsky Attack  ·  0-1

1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 c6 3.e3 Qa5+

Anyway, that was a pretty finish and and good game-well played coach!  :-)

I have studied king's gambit and I have crushed many players with ELO 1300-1750 with this opening. When I saceifice even 2 pawns, or go for the muzio gambit, offering a whole knight, my opponents get shocked. In addition, I like 1.e4 e5  2. f4 exf4 3. Nc3, or the bishop's gambit variation, giving my opponent the chance to give a check from h4 and make my king to move on e2, then I develop my bishops on c4 and f4, trying to always avoid the g5 system, and try to castle by hand and being my king to g2. Karjakin's and Morphy's games helped to leaen to play king's gambit lines almost perfectly up to move 12. On the other hand, when I face more experienced players than me, I almost don't touch my f pawn.

Is this a minature forum or a f-pawn forum.  Here's a nice minature.
