Just knowing the Traxler is possible it makes me want to never use the Fried Liver again. It's a punishing response.
On Saturday July 11, 2015 I played through the first 4 moves of this opening.
@Matthew that's not the correct way to play the petroff -_-
good though I like to use this better
you guys are making the wrong moves for black.
Watch out for sporks (super-forks)
Nosh, I think castling is the better option. If instead of castling black plays b5, white can repositon its queen with Qc2. If black then tries to play Qc4!, white can respond with d3, blocking the queen's attack, freeing the bishop and allowing room for the knight on b1 to defend on c2.
Davidleoli Qf5 instead of castle for the last move. Pawn goes up to block and Q takes for checkmate.
love this cool opening
And to threaten a queen-rook fork
NG5 to put pressure on the F pawn, right?
its a good opening
The Variation below may be a good defense of the combination proposed by texasaboy
