Flip board

    @sic and jbzdarkid

    I think it's because 6. ... Nxd4 7. Nxf7 Kxf7 8. Qh5+ g6 9. Qxe5 Nxc2+ 10. Kf1 Bd6 11. Qxh8 12. Nxa1 Qxh7+ 13. Bg7

    But I'm probably wrong, since I've never heard of the Lolli Attack until now (and that line looks terrible anyways. I just produced this line from thin air without going through it with a chess board).

    What if black plays Nxd4

    Bb4+ having a high win percentage is just a statistical anomaly; only four games have been played with it.

    Bb4+ seems to have a good winning percentage. Why?

    jbzdarkid, Nxd4 loses immediately to c3!! winning a piece

    c3 retreats the knight then black's d5 knight is lost

    I could play Nxf7.

    Could someone explain why Nxd4 (which seems the obvious move) is bad?

    this is an excellent opening for white. I try to play it all the time. (almost all the time)
