My opponent played 2…f6 against the King’s Gambit (1. e4 e5 2. f4), which is not a very strong move.
f6 is bad in a lot of similar openings, because it
- weakens the kingside
- allows a check by the queen on h5
- wastes time when there are better moves
I tried to find the name of this variation, but couldn’t find anything.
Here is the game:
After the game my opponent told me:
Hey, just saw your comment at the end of our game – it is funny you should mention my chess newsletter, because our game mirrored almost exactly one of the games that I featured on there:
where I talked about how to punish the Damiano Defense.
The position was not exactly the same, but very similar.
I think you might like the e-mail newsletter, and it is free.
Good luck in your future games
