Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-31-05  SneechLatke: 6.f4?! Black developes quickly and takes the initiative. It seems to me that White can't afford to take such liberties when underdeveloped.
Aug-29-06  Holmstrom: Poor play by white. Black didn't capture twice on e2 going for the endgame. Could white have gotten e5 in at some point avoiding the e-pawn getting captured?
Feb-18-07  ChessDude33: I was playing the black side of this opening at a local scholastic tournament. His coach after the game asked how it went and he said that I four-moved checkmated him lol.

The game went as follows!
1.e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 exd4 4. Nxd4 Bc5 5. Nxc6?! Qf6! 6. Na5?? Qxf2#

Apr-04-13  optimal play: This defence against the Scotch Game (with 5...Qf6) appears to have first been played by Riemann just three days earlier (round 3) E Schallopp vs F Riemann, 1879

Having achieved success in that hard-fought game he tried it again using the sharper 7...Qh4+ with devastating effect.
