A Vospernik vs D Sklyarov, 2011 (kibitz #2)

Note that 4....Kg8 is probably stronger than 4....g6, but Black is happy either way.

  FSR: Barlov's 2...c6? is a flaccid response to 2.Bc4. 2...Nxe4! 3.Bxf7+ Kxf7 4.Qh5+ Kg8! 5.Qd5+ e6 6.Qxe4 d5, as in the game <keypusher> cited, is much stronger and gives Black a large advantage. 2...Nxe4 3.Bxf7+ seems like a cool trick when you first see it, but it just leaves Black with the center, the bishop pair, and a big advantage.

Not unlike the similar line in the Vienna 1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Bc4 Nxe4 4.Bxf7+? Kxf7 5.Nxe4 d5! Opening Explorer Just don't fall for the hoary old trap 5...Nc6? 6.Qf3+! Kg8?? 7.Ng5! and it's time to set up the pieces for the next game.
