    What is the best way to take advantage of this? You are White.

    1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 f6 3. Nxf6 Pxf6 4. Qh5+ Ke7

    I'm used to people pushing the g Pawn, but this I don't know how to maximize my advantage with.

    Is pretty much 1-0

    I played ...e5, going for the royal skewer. I ended up only with a 2 Pawn advantage. but I won.

    The best that Fritz can offer for Black in the Damiano.
    After all this the score given after 60 seconds is 1.+- (5.54) 24...Qg6 25.Qc4 Bb4 26.Be4

    Here's a famous Damiano Defence game in which Black managed to draw. See if you can guess who is playing White before you peep at the headers.

    Hey! I got it right! My only clue was the first move.

    Well-known analyses of Damiano's defense after accepting the knightsacrifice.



    Note: NOT 8.Bxb7,Bd6 9.Qa5,Bxb7 10.Qf5+,Kh6 11.d3+,g5
    12.h4,Kg7 and the black king survives

    If Black declines by 3....,Qe7 it appears Black can survive.Maybe it's even a sound defense?

    There is also Ne7, but queen e7 is better, you'll just have to move the queen many times.

    Romanticus,

    In the game you posted, why not 13.Bxg5? Wouldn't that win black's queen?

    Yes it would.
    White's not content with a queen when he has mate.
    Btw,it's not a game,it's pure analyses.The line has been analysed out to a White win.

    I'd think the bishop move would be winning too.
