Here Rybka programmer Rajlich claims to have solved the King's Gambit and has found that it is losing by force for White, unless he plays 3.Be2, which leads to a draw.

He said he will work on the other openings next. Can't wait to hear his findings, hoping to get confirmation that chess is a drawn game.

It turns out I was another April fool:

Despite the prank I prefer to believe this could be achieved some day... even if not in our generation! :)
