  offramp: I've done the same, ...g6 seems so natural. I haven't done it recently, but I've done it more than once.
Jun-25-06  altair7: Black could have at least avoided the checkmate...Either way, it's a terrible game.
Dec-12-06  Hot Logic: How to improve as black?

First off, knights before bishops. Either 2...Nf6 or 2...Nc6 would have been good moves for black.

Next it is important to note all the threats in a move. 3...Qe7 defends both threats.

The move played in this game: 3...g6 seems to be a 'hand move' that results from being accustomed to playing it against a conventional scholar's mate attempt. e.g. 1.e4 e5 2.Qh5 Nc6 3.Bc4 g6 etc. This helps illustrate the importance of move orders in the openings.

  Infohunter: What a rout!
Dec-14-08  WhiteRook48: I recall Seirawan played a game like this, only it went like this: Seirawan-NN
1. e4 e5 2. Qh5? g6?? 3. Qxe5+ Qe7 4. Qxh8 Qxe4+ 5. Ne2 Qxc2?! 6. Qxg8 Nc6 7. Na3! Qa4 8. b3! Qb4 9. Nc2? Qc5? 10. Ba3!!!!! Qxc2 11. Qxf8# 1-0
Apr-11-09  WhiteRook48: HERE IS AN ANNOTATION
1. e4 e5 2. Bc4 Bc5 3. Qh5?
(easily defended by 3...Qe7) but Black misses the defense and... 3...g6????
4. Qxe5+! Ne7?? 5. Qxh8+ Ng8 6. Qxg8+ Bf8 7. Qxf7#
How crazy can Black get?

  mcb: Like many attacks it's deadly unless you play the one defending move that works, every time. Then you can control White.

  sea7kenp: I agree with <Hot Logic>: This Game is a good example, of why it's a good idea to develop Knights before Bishops.
