    While you don't seem to immediately lose a piece, it is positionally disastrous.

    1. d4 Bb6 (Or 1... Bb4+ 2. c3) 2. d5 Nb8 (where it is undeveloped - other squares doom the Knight).

    So White has full control of the centre and Black is severely behind in development. (White has space, time and control of the centre on his side, all the goals of the openings accomplished, with little for Black).

    This question illustrates the limits of your approach very well.

    There is no clear, immediate material loss, but the position is clearly weaker.

    You won't get through these by just going through endless variations. You need to UNDERSTAND what's going on.

    you gotta know the first thing about the king's gambit: it is dangerous for white to play because it opens up his kings side to attacks from the black queen. he absolutely needs his knight on f3 to keep your queen off h4. just look at all your attacks on the kings side if that knight isn't there ... Nxe5, Nxe5 Qh4+ with all manner of attack from there. instead you block your queen in, and for what? a developed knight that can't really go anywhere and the ability to castle into his impending attack?

      my recommendation for dealing with KG in the future is to play the sicilian instead of E4 and it will never come up.
