Panteldakis CountergambitEdit

Among the oldest countergambits in the King's Gambit Declined is the Panteldakis Countergambit, 1.e4 e5 2.f4 f5?!, known from a game played in 1625 in which Gioachino Greco used it to win with the Black pieces. It is nonetheless considered dubious because 3. exf5 with the threat of Qh5+ gives White a good game.
