Sometimes I see this played after black starts with a Philidor, and now I just saw it played with f6 before d6.
I've taken on e5 with the knight on a couple occassions, and I've also just played d4 and dxe. White gets a nice advantage in all lines, I'm guessing due to the lead in development and easier piece play. f6 just doesn't seem very good--I guess that's why there are so few games in the master database with the move. But some people like to feel "creative" and play bad openings--eventually I guess they are punished enough and stop doing it.
I have encountered this many times and very recently. Might I say it is a big LOL when I run into it because the counter play is simply endless. Second of all e4e52. Nf3f63. Nxe5Qe7! Nf3 to the person who said black isn't losing. If someone played it that way then they need to go back to basics of chess I don't even see how that is plausable play from white. If you want to play something silly like this then take it a step further and just learn theLatvian Gambit. Save people the trouble of embarrassing you lol.
what if black sacrifices 2 points for the iniative?
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f6?! 3.Nxe5! fxe5? 4.Qh5+ g6?! 5.Qxe5+ Qe7! 6.Qxh8 Qxe4+ 7.Qxc2
I think, that white have big chanses to win. And look at my game(i was white)
Black isn't losing in this opening:
Worst defence ever!
after the bishop check on c4, black should play d5 to prevent qf5
worst opening *ever*
my friend used to play this way, but I discovered the fault
It can be reversed!
If white plays Nxe5 and black plays fxe5, then black is completely lost.
The trick for black is to continue their development and clear the line to castle. In a game I saw on the game explorier this is what happened and white resigned. his Q was trapped and in danger of being captured. Black was slightly ahead on material with a better development.
