  Honza Cervenka: <donjova: 7.Qh5 is an interesting try. There are only five games in the database with this move.>

There is a good reason for 7.Qh5 not being much popular. After 7...g6! 8.Qh6 Nf5 9.Qf4 Nxe5 10.Qxe5 0-0 black takes over the initiative with better game.

Jan-22-17  MelvinDoucet: <Takes over the initiative> is a bit much but Black sure is just fine. In the line <7. ♕h5 g6 8. ♕h6 ♘f5 9. ♕f4 ♘xe5 10. ♕xe5 0-0>, 11. c3 d5 12. d4 will likely fizzle out to your typical dead-equal Berlin position.
