You certainly cannot play 2...f6?!? as it will put your king in check. The best move would be 2...Nc6!? followed by 3...Nf6 pushing away the queen and developing with a tempo. 2...d6 also looks okay.
Originally posted by Knight SquareTry 2. ... Nf6 sacrificing a pawn. After 3. Qxe5+ Be7 you will soon get a big lead in development by playing natural moves like O-O, Nc6, d5 etc. Use this to attack your opponent, especially his queen and if the centre opens up, the king stuck on e1.
What do I do against
1 e4 e5
2 Qh5 ...
The Opponent would plan 3 Qh5xe4+, but I usually defend my e-pawn with a weak move f6 or Nc6.
The move go aganist devolpment and I know that.
So what do I DO!

That is one of the principles of chess called [b]time For example in the game below I decided to harass black's Queen in exchange for him grabbing my pawn. Don't go pawn grabbing in the openingGame 2044222
Note how I mobillised my forces while his pieces were still on the back rank.[/b]
