Don't play an opening you don't know!

    Not so much the opening choice really, more the subsequent play. By move 6 Black is way behind on development and still thinks he can fool around with 6. ...c5, while 8. ... Qxg2 is horrible.

    It does not have to do anything with opening theory as much as lack of knowledge of the basic principles of the game.

    That said, the "Patzer Check variation" 3...Qe5+ is not THAT bad if Black had played 4...c6 to create a shelter for her majesty at c7. Factly, it may even be a good choice for Black if he wants to get out of the book as fast as possible having a worse, but playable position.
