First off your move order in the Damiano is wrong. Move number four should be 4. d5 instead of Qxe4. The king hunt variation in the Damiano is considered refuted nowdays. Some very nice analysis by NM Randy Bauer has revealed this. The only chance in the Damiano is the 3. Qe7 variation. Even then black has an uphill struggle to get a draw. Fischer-McCreagor 1964 which featured the Damiano defense ended in a draw. The Damiano is best used in a game of five minute blitz where your opponent does not have the proper amount of time to make the best move.
