  alexmagnus: So, this is the newest apearance of 2.Qh5 on a relatively high level. 5...Qd8 is funny, gives the gained tempo back, at it loos like normal 1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Bc4 Nc6. But I guess the extra tempo with Qe7 didn't use much anyway - the Queen is only in Bishop's way...
Apr-17-13  RookFile: Someone explained to me once how he had noticed that very often, a good move for the queen is to go back to her original square. It's true a surprisingly high percentage of the time. This game is an example, 5. Qd1 and 5....Qd8 were both good moves.
