  tpstar: <chessplayermatthew> I also love the Two Knights Defense, but as Black! It's a sharp fighting opening with chances for both sides. This game is the Perreux Variation (4. d4 ed 5. Ng5) which is less common than the Main Line (4. Ng5 d5 5. ed Na5) because 5 ... Ne5 defends f7 and attacks the Bc4, then 6 ... h6 kicks the Ng5 back. Black should never take on d5 because the game becomes too open too early; there are 12 games in the Opening Explorer with 6 ... Nxd5?!, and White won all 12. Compare to the Fried Liver Attack (4. Ng5 d5 5. ed Nxd5?! 6. Nxf7!? Kxf7 7. Qf3+) where White's game plays itself. Anyway, here's a better example of the Perreux Variation, at least for Black = J Carleton vs V Osterom, 1989
Jan-28-07  Rubenus: <tpstar> If 5...Ne5, White can choose between 6.Qxd4 and 6. Bb3?! h6 7. f4 hxg5 8. fxe5 Nxe4 and white sacrificed two pawns for attacking chances along the f-file. For I know, 5...d5 6. exd5 Qe7+! is black's best defense (7. Kf1 enz.).

  whiteshark: Hey <Tab>, ...except the ♕f5 moves are missing there and White's name contains an additional <e>. But that's only nit-picking, of course. (:D
Jun-12-10  JimmyVermeer: ... and the fact that the 2nd and 3rd moves of each player are transposed.
Jun-12-10  JimmyVermeer: Some people consider an o with an umlaut to be the same as an o followed by an e. Therefore Schröder = Schroeder.
