Scholar's mate is easy to remember-1.e4 e5 2.Qh5 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Qxf7#. Is it easy to defend? Yes!


Come back on 'More Ways To Win'.

This is a bad opening, don't play it. It's only for beginners.

    There's acctualy 3 or even 4 ways to defend. I'll list some pros and cons so you can decide your way to defend.

    1. g6 . loses the pawn's dark square grip on the kingside but makes fianchetto possible. Chases away the queen.

    2. (3.) Qe7 / Qf6 - While Qe7 temporarily blocks the dark-square bishop, Qf6 is, by my means, the most aggressive defense, making all other normal development moves still available. (Though breaking the rule - queen is the last piece to move)

    4. Ke7 . Leave the king on d6 after Qxf7 and pray that he will survive. This is like getting your liver fried without getting a knight for it.

    Also: d5 is a temporarily block which allows a queen sacrifice (after Bxd5, Qxd5) to avoid mate. This is probably even more bold than Ke7.

    The most accurate way to defend is 1e4 e5 2Qh5 Nc6!? 3Bc4 g6!! 4Qf3 Nf6

    Now black has a clear advantage his peices are very active but a sudden move!!!!

    Qb3?! Nd4!! Its all over for white 

    Bf7 loses due to Ke7 All defended!!! Threat on c2 is dangereous and b3 queen is attacked!!!
