    why do people play it then - I've had it played against me "often" for such a bad defense.

    In most cases they don't know better.

    I wonder how to tackle it - I've faced it and I take the pawn.

    What about the flipped:
    1 e4 e5 2 c4 ?? How to play that

    Interestingly enough, it's named after Damiano because he condemned it as a crap opening.

    For white, this is a dream at blitz level!


    White can immediatly go on the attack with Nxe5!

    ..fxe5? Qh5+ Ke7 [g6? Qxe5+ Qe7 Qxh8] Qxe5+ Kf7 Bc4+ ...

    giving white 2 pawns and a strong attack for a Knight...


    however, if black plays Qe7 he/she can win the pawn back (but a blitz very few play that)

    Yes, Still-in-progress Defense. Finish the game, then discuss it.
