I doubt that opening is very good. Besides, after 5. f3 e5 (normal is
0-0) White should probably take the opportunity to play 6. de5, after
which MCO gives 6...de5 7. Qxd8+ Kxd8 8. Bg5 Be6 9. 0-0-0+ Nbd7 10. Nd5
Kc8. Cifuentes-Roberto, Cuba 1995. The book sez =, but I prefer White.

If you're going to check on h4, do it after 5. f3 0-0 6. Be3 e5 7. d5
Nh5 8. Qd2 Qh4+. When the opponent plays g3, sac the queen if you dare.

If he plays Bf2, theory is Qe7, but I'd play Qf4 and offer a draw.

Nh5 8. Qd2 Qh4+. When the opponent plays g3, sac the queen if you dare.


In the line with 5...e5 the queen check on h4 can´t be blocked with
g3 because of the advanced black f-pawn.

8...Qh4+ 9. g3? Nxg3 10. Qf2 f4! No queen sac is necessary, Black
just won a pawn.
