  FSR: This isn't even Lehmann's shortest decisive game - though he won the other one. H Lehmann vs Schulz, 1950
Sep-25-12  Abdel Irada: I suppose games like this have to be included to demonstrate well-known opening traps in practice. :-)

  FSR: <Abdel Irada> Have you ever tried 5.Qe2 in blitz? I have, and it seems that Black falls for it over half the time - even some fairly decent players.
Sep-25-12  Abdel Irada: I've played it once or twice, but only against low-range "B" players and below. Generally, anyone over 1700 sees it coming.

After ...e6, the queen looks rather silly on e2, and the bishop wants to be developed on d3 rather than g2.

  FSR: <Abdel Irada> I didn't say it was good - except for a few laughs.
Sep-25-12  Abdel Irada: I didn't say you did. :-D

  louispaulsen88888888: I play Qe2 online often and about 10% of the time somebody plays 5...Ngf6. But even if they don't fall for the trap you get a decent game anyway. The typical positions usually arise. I just wouldn't venture it in a tournament game.

  perfidious: A TN was introduced with 6.Nxf6+ in Danielle Zimrin vs Natasha Isabel Van Niekerk, 2016, White even going on to lose that game!

  louispaulsen88888888: I play 5.Qe2 a lot online and I would agree that roughly 10% of the time someone falls for the trap, It's fun to play when you have nothing to lose. Even if Black sees it, you still have a decent position with the usual Caro Kann themes and structures.

  louispaulsen88888888: That's funny. I didn't realize I already commented on this game. I just agreed with myself!!

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: The game mentioned by <perfidious> is no longer in the cg database. Maybe it was just a bad dream.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: I found it, but black avoided the mate and played 5..Ndf6:
