  fredthebear: After 4.Bc4 the correct move for Black is 4...c6. Natural moves like 4...Be7, 4...Nf6 and 4...h6? all lose here as White continues each the same way with 5.dxe5 and then threatens the f7-square.
May-08-16  rainingpieces: But even after 4...c6 White can continue with 5.dxe5 when 5...Nxe5 6.Nxe5 dxe5 7.Bxf7+ is easy. Also 5...Nxe5 6.Nxe5 Qa5+ and let's say 7.Nd2 Qxe5 is horrible for Black; White just has a huge lead in development. So that leaves after 4...c6 5.dxe5 the move 5...dxe5, when White can continue with 6.Ng5. This game is a good example how Black can be punished: Van der Wiel vs J van Baarle, 1983
