  FSR: This is the only game in the database with the weird 2...f6. Opening Explorer A strong response would have been 3.e4! when Black cannot regain the pawn with 3...fxe5 because of 4.Qh5+. After, say, 3...Nc6 4.d4 Black has a terrible game a pawn down.

Surprisingly, it looks like Black is fine after 4.d4 fxe5 (6.dxe5 Qh4+). <Sally Simpson> might take up this move. :-) But Black seems to be in bad shape after 4.Bb5.
