There is an article in the July 2009 issue of Chess Life Magazine that covers the fried liver attack and lolli attack. It's pretty good, you can view it online if you are a USCF member.
@caesarII: 14. Qxe5+ and material is not even anymore! Plus, white still has the option of castling to either side. I'd rather play white here.
Who in their right mind wants to get fried livered or lolli attacked? At least E4H5 only wastes a single turn with no loss in pieces.
That is the second time today I have viewed a FLA with Black placing his King on e6. I have seen other exmples where the King is at e6 as far out as move 19 and the advantage was slight for White.
Good line though. Reminds me why I play the KIA and Spanish with the White pieces.
6. ... Na5 refutes the FLA
I know I'm not a grandmaster or anything, but in my 3000+ games I have found that the best response to ng5 is still the Traxler because people
#1.) See a fork and go "ohhhhhhh I want pawn and rook"
#2.) Go hmm, desperation that person sacrifices a bishop
#3.) People who play ng5 are usally highly agressive players and don't play well defensively.
After whatever white does black takes the rook with a tempo
Actually, I think the 2 knights in general is not played so much at the top because it's generally acknowleged that black doesn't get enough for the pawn. But yes, if the 2 knights is played it's nearly always with Na5 in mind.
Actually, I don't think that's so true. The two knight's is played quite often at higher level.. in my database there are around 70,000 with Bc5 and 61,000 with Nf6.
