no rating cap for this one? i am sure you know the answer :P
this is a quite widely known line :P
Good, and best if black has no idea what he's doing. Adequate still if black does know what he's doing, and is only playing this for kicks.
Yeres, you have an impressive rating for making a question of this kind.
Are you really serious?!...
It´s a theorical win for white, of course
No, it's only a theoretical win if taken.
C40: Latvian and Elephant Gambits.
One case where White can go wrong after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f6 3.Nxe5 Qe7 is 4.Qh5+
Kasparov and Keene in Batsford Chess Opening 2 (1989) give the line 3.Nxe5 Qe7 4.Nf3 d5 5.d3 dxe4 6.dxe4 Qxe4+ 7.Be2 with a slight to clear advantage for White.
Nice -- I guess his original question was a bit more subtle than we all thought! We had just assumed that Black would automatically play fxe5.
I'm not sure whether you wanted the sequence continued or not, but 4...g6! 5.Nxg6 Qxe4+ forks off the Knight.
To me it looks bad since you lose the knight...then again I'm no where near your playing level and wouldn't understand
3...fe?? 4.Qh5+ Ke7 (4...g6 5.Qxe5+ wins the Rook) 5.Qxe5 Kf7 6.Bc4+ d5 (preventing Qf5+ once the King lands on g6) 7. Bxd5+ Kg6 and now, without looking at a board, I think it's 8.Bxb7, deflecting the Bishop from f5, and if 8...Bxb7 9.Qf5+ Kh6 10.d4+ g5, and I think 11.h4!, although I'm confident I mixed up the move order.
Thanks you made me understand
After 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f6 3.Nxe5, White loses the N for an attack.
And this is where the ability to conduct a relentless King hunt comes in.
For example, after 3...fxe5 4.Qh5+ Ke7 5.Qxe5+ Kf2 6.Bc4+ d5 7.Bxd5 Kg6 (see position below) conducting an attack on the exposed K is not so easy. Black's K is exposed giving White a big positional advantage
For example, 8.h4 h5 9.Qg3+ Kh7 10.Nc3 Nf6 11.Bf7 (Threat: 12.Qg6#) as in the game K. Karal - S. Dogan, Turkey Championship, Kusadasi 2004.
Now I'm looking forward to using this...big thanks
@ yeres30, first of all, in the Karal-Dogan game cited 9.Qg3 misses the winning 9.Bxb7! Second, even after 9.Qg3+ Kh7 10.Nc3 Black should play 10...Nc6! (controlling e5 together with the imminent ...Bd6), not 10...Nf6 11.Bf7 Bg4 12.e5 followed by f3. White has three pawns for a piece but Black is getting developed and the extra piece may soon tell. In any event, White is not winning with 9.Qg3 but is winning easily with Bxb7!
Pretty good for not looking at the board! Yes, the attack works best with the move order 8.h4 first. Black has to stop h5+, e.g. by playing ...h5 or ...h6 himself (8...Bd6 fails to 9.h5+ Kh6 10.d4+ g5 11.hxg6+ Kxg6 12.Qh5+ next 13.Qf7#). So 8.h4 h5 9.Bxb7! Bxb7 (9...Bd6 10.Qa5 Nc6 11.Bxc6 Rb8 prolongs the battle but White, four pawns up, wins as he pleases) 10.Qf5+ Kh6 11.d4+ g5 12.Qf7! and there is no defense to hxg5+ followed by Rxh5#.
Yes, Bxb7 would be even an easier victory, because Black can not take due to Qf5
