    Yeah i've used it in a blitz OTB game myself...to fully capture the french flavor, then I slammed the Knight to Q5 I shouted "L'Etat est Moi, Putain!" Then I kicked over the board, guzzled some cheap beaujolais and called up some whores...

    That is why you play h3 when there is a Knight on c6.

    I played into a similar, though not exactly the same, position as that after 4...Bg4 once, and I played the same 5. Nxe5, thinking I had the advantage until he played 5...Nxe5 and I resigned.
    5. Nxe5 is just a blunder rewarded by a win.
