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
Yes, Bxb7 would be even an easier victory, because Black can not take due to Qf5
