Notes on chess in Chicago.
Another good way to play against this: 1.e4 e5 2.Qh5 Nf6! the idea being to punish White's break of principle with rapid development. White will lose at least 3 tempi with the Queen after 3.Qxe5+ Be7. Nakamura lost a short game with White in this variation. http://chessmind.powerblogs.com/posts/1114752346.shtml
2...Nf6 would make a nice blog post! I had not seen that Nakamura game....I had been playing 2...Nc6 3.Bc4 g6 4.Qf3 f5!?
