  2. Nc3 Nf6

  3. Bc4 Nxe4

Boden-Kieseritzky Gambit is the opening where white gives up the key central pawn and gets on with the development of his pieces. If black tries to hold on to the pawn then a dangerous attack ensues by white. Hence under favorable situation the pawn has to be given back or if able to outsmart white and hold onto the pawn ,the endgame then favors black.
