Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-25-07  WarmasterKron: 2...e5? is a ridiculous idea - Black chooses to go into a King's Gambit a whole tempo down. Instead of 3.d4, 3.Nf3! ought to give White a nice advantage.

Perhaps the only reponse to 2.f4 worse than the text is 2...Ba3.

  Phony Benoni: <WarmasterKron> I haven't checked this with an engine, but 2...Qg5 might be marginally worse than 2...Ba3.

But agreed--2...e5 does not make a lot of sense, unless White is the sort of player who always grabs pawns.
