The f5 Opening

Jion_Wansu

From my other thread on USCF:

Since I created this. I would like to call the mainline the German opening:

 

1. e4 f5
2. exf5 g6
3. fxg6 Nf6
4. gxh7 Rxh7

Would you be black or white?

1.e4 f5?? is the ONLY opening that loses on the first move in my opinion.

Maybe it should be called the Germane Opening?! Undecided

Is it relevant to anything?

LOL, the opening explorer shows 4 games, all won by White after exf5.

Serious offense to all Germans.  Call it the Wansu defense imo ;-)

Like I said, this is the ONLY opening that loses on move 1, okay maybe d4 e5 loses as well, but here it is much worse.
