Sep-06-04  Knight13: This might be interesting in the opening. 3. Nxe5 Nxe5 4. Qe2 Nf6. 5. Nc6+ 1-0 wins the queen.
Sep-06-04  Giancarlo: <knight13>
Yes, that's called the <equalize quickly by black but lose the queen because I forgot I could pin the white knight to his pawn!>opening. I would be surprised if i saw anyone over 1600 ever fall fo a trap like that. Really it's not a trap, it's a blunder.
Sep-07-04  Leviathan: I'd like to specify that 3. ... Nxe4!? (the Damiano attack) isn't a beginner's error, but an aggressive gambit.

For instance: 4.Qe2 Qe7! <as already pointed out, Nf6?? loses immediatly> 5.Qxe4 d6 6.d4 dxe5 7.Qxe5 Qxe5 8.dxe5 Bf5 then ...Nd7 and ...000

If you are an attacking player, just try it. You will like it :)

Jan-31-05  RookFile: What a pretty finish to this game!
Jan-31-05  InfinityCircuit: The problem is that the main line in the Petroff runs 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nf6 3 Nxe5 d6 4 Nf3 Nxe5 5 d4 d5. Therefore, only rarely will you see someone actually take the pawn on move three as black.
