  patzer2: After White's blunder 4. fxe5??, Black has a forced win after 4...Qh4+!, with a decisive "pursuit" or king hunt combination.

Note that 5. g3 drops the Rook on h1 to the double attack 5...Qe4+ .

  kevin86: A lesson:avoid taking the pawn at e5 in the Falkbeer! White is viciously punished for doing so.
May-01-05  halcyonteam: Be2 is blunder!
May-16-08  dakgootje: Actually 8. ...Nf6 really is not the strongest move. Instead 8. ...Qf5 with:

a) 9. Kg3 Bf2#
b) 9. Ke2 Qe4# [or if you want to make white suffer a little more: 9. ...Qf2 10. Kd3 Bf5 or ♕d4 with ♔e2 ♕e4 11. Kc3 Qd4 12. Kb3 Qb4#]

So ...Nf6 is played, both h3 and g4 fail to safe white:

9. h3 Qf5 10. Kg3 Bd6 11. Kh4 g5#
9. g4 Bxg4 10. Kg2 Qe4 11. Nf3 Bh3 12. Kxh3 Qg4#

The move that actually does <not> immediately mates (as far as I can see) is 9. d4. However, starting with 9. ...Bg4, black wins a huge amount of material ;-)

Dec-02-13  randhomykchess: 7. ...♕g6+ a) 8. ♔h4 ♗e7#; b) 8. ♔f3 ♕g4#; c) 8. ♔f4 ♕f5+ 9. ♔g3 ♗f2# (or 9. ...♕f2#)
