There is no getting around the fact that the Fred (1.e4 f5 2.exf5 Kf7??)
This isn't the Fred, this is the Southern Fred.
The best move after exf5 is Nf6, preventing Qh5+
The Latvian gambit is actually safer than this...
Well, go on posting games where white is randomly blundering pieces then, if that is pleasing you.
It could be worse: white could be blundering pieces by design.......
I disagree. First, 2...Nf6 is the Duras Gambit. The Fred proper occurs after 2...Kf7?!.
After 2...Nf6, White can respond with 3.Be2! threatening mate. It is hard to say this is "better". For example, 3...d6 4.Bh5+ Kd7 5.Bf7 c5 6.Nc3, with a winning advantage for White.
