Finally, one opponent tried 5. qe2 nc6 6. be3 ! How should black respond?
Well, if White is going to offer exchanges, Black should accept with 6 ...Bxe3. But White could have just developed with 6 Nf3 and a slight advantage based on his strong pawn at e4 which establishes a beach head in the center, securing White greater space for the foreseeable future. Why offer trades which lose time instead of developing?
Still, the whole idea of declining the Danish with 3 ...d3 is odd. Black gets virtually instant equal play with ...d5 after capturing any of the pawns (d, c, b), there is no benefit to be had to ...d3.
Yeah, I met this line often in rapid and blitz tournament. I accept all the gambit pawns then return them all. Here is my line: [1.e4 e5 2.d4 cxd4 3.c3 dxc3 4.Bc4 cxb2 5.Bxb2 then I start returning them d5! 6.Bxd5 Nf6 7.Bxf7 Kxf7 8.Qxd8 Bb4+ 9.Qd2 Bxd2 10.Nxd2 Re8 11.Ngf3 Nc6 12.0-0 Bg4 with decent play.]
used this against u, and it semmed ok.
I think your a dik and so does everyone else!

This is what Bologan recommends (in alternative he gives JMB2010's suggestion) in his must-read for any 1.e4 e5 player "Bologan's Black Weapons in the Open Games". It is only half of the analysis he gives in his book, though. Anyway, I think the Qe7 move is not only good but also relatively unknown, and it has brought me many points. I hope it helped.
