e4 e5 nf3 f6!!??

  • #41

    worst opening for Black:

    1 e4 e5 2 Qh5 Ke7 3 Qxe5 mate

    Smile

    If I were black though, I'd move the knight on f6 after the white queen takes the rook. And the queen is trapped on several moves I think.

  • #43

    The Queen is actually not trapped. White is winning in that position. That might be a good practical try at some levels, though.

    ....Gabor explored.

    The biggest advantage of 2...f6 is that it gains about 20 minutes. White spends about 10 minutes wondering why he didn't play the king's gambit, which would have saved him 10 minutes drinking time at the bar, then spends a further 10 minutes winning the game. 10 + 10 = 20.

    2...f6 should be a fingerslip to the Latvian Gambit.
