Learn the Traxler variation of the FLA.
If you accept 3-5 minutes blitz games here or on uchess as black against -1500 players & they open 1.e4, many times they go for the Fried Liver:
Often they then play
then the virtually forced 6...Qe7
& it's anybody's game.
white to move
Thing is, they were expecting a juicy attack on your K, maybe bringing it to the center of the board, but instead they have entered a minefield!
If you habitually play 1...e5 then you must learn the Traxler if you value tactical fun, especially in blitz.
