          In the diagram below, after 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 d6 I tried all legal theoretical moves and it claimed they were incorrect. Finally, I tried the naive 3.Qf3 and it said it was correct. Then it gives 3...g5???? Of course allowing 4.Qxf7 mate. This is incredibly stupid. Much better for Black is 3...Nf6. White would have done better with 3.d3 followed by f4 with a favourable form of King's Gambit or 3.Nf3 possibly transposing to a Philidor Def. If you must post these things, at least make sure you know what you are talking about.

          3.Nf3 is not incorrect.
