has 1.d4 e6
2.c4 f5
ever been played?
if it has, whats the record on it, if u can find it, and if it hasnt, what do you think about it as a sacrifice? is it just another "never going to succeed opening variations" like my 1.e4 c6 2.b4, or can i win the nobel prize for my new innovation?

My initial thoughts After 1.d4 e6 2.c4 f5 3.g4, it seems to me that Black should be able to decline with 3... Nf6 and achieve an acceptable game, but of course that would be spoiling the fun. So after 3... fxg4 4. e4, my first concern as White would be that Black has the potential to stir up a great deal of trouble on White's kingside. After things like ...Qh4, ...Bb4, ...Nf6, and ...O-O, Black starts to look like he has some very real kingside prospects. White does have his strong central control, however, and he has Bf4-g3 to strengthen his kingside. If he can get Bg2 reasonably quickly, White will have some long term pressure at his disposoal.

I can envision a situation where Black would initially have pressure, but if White can rebuff any attack, his positional assets may win out in the long run. Say (after 1.d4 e6 2.c4 f5 3.g4 fxg4 4. e4) 4... Qh4 5. Bf4 Bb4+ 6. Nc3 Nf6 7. Bg3 (7. e5 Nh5, 7. Bxc7 Nxe4) Qg5 8. Bg2 O-O 9. Nge2. Black has his pawn and open f-file; White has his center, slightly better development, and the opportunity to win the two bishops with a timely a3.

An interesting positional sacrifice and while I wouldn't expect a leading grandmaster to play something like this any time soon, it's probably quite playable at lower levels.

I believe 1. d4 f5 2. g4 is the Korchnoi(?) Gambit, but I haven't seen it with the interpolation of 2. c4 e6. 2. c4 doesn't seem to be particularly good, while e7-e6 is almost always played, so I get the impression that this can't really be good. After, for example, the suggested 4. e4 then 4... d5! appears to give Black an excellent game. It seems like 4. h3 is relatively better, but I should think that 4... g3 5. fxg3 Nf6 (the normal way of meeting 1. d4 f5 2. g4) gives Black a good position.

Sorry to disappoint you, but there’s no chance for a Nobel in the opening. If you found a move which had never been played by masters, trust me, it’s a blunder.

People with “uncommon” opening, like Dutch in your case, usually have been prepared. So it might be reasonable for a “coward” to divert or give an unexpected reply.

(3)g4 will do the job. In a short time it might be possible to dominate the center with e4. I don’t think it is a pure gambit, as the black pawn may sooner or later falls (and with the position I don’t think black should keep the 1 pawn advantage). White pieces are all opened and ready to attack, but unfortunately the gambit (g4) had also weaken it’s own King position, and I think it will be difficult to maintain a good center pawns structure for the endgame.

Bottom line, though I cannot prove it, (3)Nc3 is I think a lot better, and (3)g4 should only be done if you love the complexity (and do not care to loose :D)
