Playing a live opponent on FICS, There must have been something wrong with my hand operating the mouse when I went to drag the F Pawn to f4, and look what happens. To respect my opponent, I decided to play the game out anyway. Here it is:
why did you just drop a piece for no reason on move 7 with bxf7?
At that time, the position isnt even that bad for white, and in blitz you could have just done bc3 or g4 h4 and start attacking the king.
Here are the reasons why:
I did that in view of 7. ...Nxc4.
if 7. Bb3, then ...Nxb3 8. ab
if 7. Bd5, then ...Nxd5
I didn't want doubled Queen's Knight Pawns nor did I think his F Knight was good in the center, or at least, not for me. In conclusion, I felt like he was going to take it anyway. But perhaps, going back to your comment "The position not bad for White", if he had taken the Bishop with the Knight, if I moved it to b3, maybe that would have worked out for me? Take with the A Pawn and open the Rook up.
I do agree with you that 7. Bxf7+ no good, but I disgraced the opening, anyway. Ah well. This is why I post these crazy games is to get feedback and thanks.
