    I think Black wants to use his pawn, bishop, and queen to checkmate the KING.

    Black's actually in a brilliant position. This opening scares me.

    This is basically relying on white to fall into the (5. Nxf7 Qxg2 6. Rf1 Bg4) trap. After 5. d4, I reckon white has a large advantage. Certainly a cool novelty though.

    This looks interesting, and I'd like to try it, but wouldn't your oponent have to move just so for this to be possible?

    Nxf7 wouldn't be right though cause after Nxf7 is Qxg2 and black can't do Rf1 or Ke2 cause of Bg4

    I prefer to play white, because he threats the king direct.

    @h777 : Bxf7 is the 'common' continuation. White has the d4 move (after check) to both protect the knight while attacking the black queen with bishop on c1, making sure black cannot take the pawn a passant. Yes, black gets the g2 pawn and also heavy play on the kingsside while sacrificing rokade and having to play with a king in the middle of the board. It looks very sharp from what Ive seen. Bet u could take loads of points with this playing black in blitz and bullet.

    Bxf7+ is bad to me because if Bxf7+,Ke7(or other king moves),Black is threatening to take the white knight and the g2 pawn.

    5.Nxf7 indeed looks better than Bxf7 , looks to me that white can launch an all out blitz on blacks army ending with an early mate , happy Halloween Laughing
