  Sastre: White is lost after 19.Rxe3 Re8.

  FSR: 7.Qxe5? is a beguiling move. A lot of White players figure they can't be worse with queens off and an extra pawn. But Black's pieces come out very quickly and it is hard for White to defend the pawns on e5 and c2 - and if they both fall White is a pawn down.

  sea7kenp: I was under the impression that the Line with 3 Nxe5 Nxe4, strongly favored White. But here (through Opening Explorer), I find a number of Black Victories. <FSR>, thanks for your Perspective on this.

  FSR: <sea7kenp> 3...Nxe4 is a good surprise weapon. My friend Dean Arond is a specialist in it. Repertoire Explorer: Dean Arond (black) I have dabbled in it myself. NN vs F Rhine, 2017. The world's leading player of the variation is IM Friedrich Karl Volkmann. Repertoire Explorer: Friedrich Karl Volkmann (black)

White's best line is probably simply 7.dxe5 Nc6 8.Nc3!, playing for a better endgame. Opening Explorer As usual, Volkmann shows the best response: J Broekmeulen vs F Volkmann, 2006.

  FSR: As best I can tell, 3...Nxe4 is literally the most underrated opening variation in all of chess. Many opening books treat it as basically a forced win for White. Few players know anything about it, and expect an easy win when it is played against them. Such players are often rudely awakened, as in this game.
