  FSR: Black could have tried 6...Nh6! 7.Bxh6 O-O!, which is surprisingly resilient since the obvious consolidating move 8.Bc1? is met by 8...Nb4! 9.Qd1 c2! Best is 8.Bxg7 Kxg7 9.Nxc3 d6 10.O-O, when Stockfish 12 assesses the position as +0.86.

  perfidious: While White has, of course, scored very heavily from the position after 6.Qd5, matters have not always gone his way; in the line given above by <FSR>, a future well-known author would come to grief after playing 9.Qh5 in T Krabbe vs Nieuwhuis, 1959.
