Gary Lane doesn't think much of it, although he gives 9 Qh5 rather than 9 Qg3 which may be an improvement.

6..fxe5 7.Qh5+ Kd7 should do the trick for black. You can follow up with Qf6

After  7.Qh5+ Kd7 8.Qxe5 Qf6 9.Qg3 Bd6 10.f4 Bc5+ 11.Kh1 White will build up a pawn centre with c3 and d4 - and start a long term attack - looks still unclear to me

If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through.

that opening almost looks like a damino defence also, fxe5 is bad because of qh5+ g6??, qxe5+.  looks like Ke7 is the best after qh5+, then again i could be wrong.

Hi friends!

A special topic for our weird gambit players  Wink

Playing over the years you really meet a lot of weird gambit ideas in the Open Games. Recently I tried the variation with f6 against the RL Exchange with 0-0 and was shot down on ICC 3-0 in a Cochrane like attack after:

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Bc6 dc6 5.0-0 f6 6.Ne5

* * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * *
* * * * * * * *
*

Afterwards I had a look at chesslive.de and was again surprised that this move has already been played about a 15 times - and not without success. Of course one has to admit it has not been used by strong players.

Turning on the comp you get an evaluation +1,5 for Black - but as in the Cochrane the compensation may be a long term one - or it isnt?

A nice starting point for some friendly August summer discussion ... ? !  Smiley
