I would like to use this game in chess classes if I may. I will just say it is a game I found on the internet or something like that. Students are always so worried about material, and this is a great example of a player fighting on and succeeding dispite the "disadvantage."

2. ... Nc6 is better than Qf6.
Originally posted by st00p1dfac3But Qf6 isn't a good developing move and Nc6 is. After 3. Bf4 you can play g6 and later fianchetto with Bg7.

It seemed to me, after going through the game a few times that
2. ... Qf6
would have rendered this 'scholar's mate' totally useless (this name i learned after looking it up in a book.)
