White sure is up a lot on development, but none of it was forced, so he may end up with just a couple pawns down for no good attack, if Black decides to develop something or shoot back a d-pawn or other standard anti-gambit efforts.
Brilliant! JK it's awful. But I think it's intentionallly awful.
well this opening is just bad play by both sides
By the time Black gobbles the 4th pawn, he's probably lost. Ne5 could be a problem.
However, after f4, d5 might be the antidote.
Hard to defend
black's use of only the bishop is the silly part, why doesn't he continue with developing normally?
what's so hard to defend aAquila? after qxg7 Qf6 seems to win for black.
This is an example of the style of pre-theoretical chess, where people just started sacrificing hoping that a mate would just materialize. Dreadful.
Yeah I did not calculate the attacking way accurately. Sorry.
Instead of hacking with the B, play Ne5. What can Black do then?
