The Ryder Gambit Accepted (1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 exf3 5.Qxf3 Qxd4! is one of the most exciting lines in all of chess, and holds a special appeal to amateurs in chess clubs and schools throughout the world. It is also exceptionally popular among postal players. Though it is not entirely sound, the gambit places such great burdens on the defender that in non-master play it can often lead to crushing and brilliant wins by White.
National Master Eric Schiller has compiled a large and fascinating corpus of games where Black dares to accept both of White's pawn sacrifices. Although White does indeed win the vast majority of games, Dr. Schiller has confirmed the theoretical assessment that White does not obtain sufficient compensation if Black plays precisely. In addition, he has found additional resources for Black in a formerly discredited defense.
Nevertheless, the opening can still be used in informal games and at amateur levels to provide exciting tactical opportunities and the chance to create the "game of a lifetime". In this book the reader will find many inspiring examples, and the games presented here are a virtual course in tactics and attacking methods.
Anyone wishing to play the opening as White will find new and more through analysis here, as well as old and forgotten gems which have not been published in books in English. And if you ever find yourself on the Black side of this fierce opening, you will appreciate the choice of two good lines for Black which will make it very difficult for White to achieve the desired goal: From the first move - to checkmate!

In my first book on the Blackmar Gambit, I stated that as far as the Ryder Gambit (1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 exf3 5.Qxf3) is concerned, Black could simply eat both pawns and live. Rev. Tim Sawyer, in his excellent compilation of BDG theory, pointed out that my statement wasn't backed up by analysis, so this monograph presents a thorough treatment, and at least one refuation of White's play.
Nevertheless, even if the opening is technically refuted, there is no reason to refrain from using it in informal games and at amateur levels. A position may hold insufficient compensation for White but defending is still an arduous task, and a single slip can prove fatal. The poor quality of defense that is typical of the games presented in this book is also typical of games played at fast time controls, in local clubs, schools, etc.
The Ryder Gambit is a fun opening, one which gives rise to spectacular combinational possibilities. Even a player with limited experience can create a magnificent mating attack which can be shown to friends and kibbitzers and even published in local chess magazines. The fans of this opening are true lovers of the Royal Game, and even if their enthusiasm is unjustified by objective analysis, it is nevertheless one of the joys of chess. These players use the Ryder over and over, even against the same opponent (notice how many games in this collection are played between the same two players!) so surprise value is not important.
Go ahead, use the Ryder from time to time, and enjoy the experience. The odds are that you will win against all but the most prepared opponents, and if Masters scoff at your opening play, hve pity on them, for they have clearly forgotten the sheer pleasures of gambit play. But please, don't try to convince them that the Ryder is a sound gambit. It really isn't. That's not the point. The play's the thing!
