Stay away from Damiano Defence

The Damiano Defence is one of the worst responses you can make after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 ...


As far as I recall I never used it, but some people do. Although I played subpar it was a easy win against a so weak defense.


When someone play f6 at this point Capablanca shakes on his grave.
The engine said that Nh4 was a weak play, but I thought that the bluff would make the temptation to attack my Knight very strong and the bluff paid off.
So, please, unless you are playing against me (!), please don't use the Damiano Defence.
