6.Nxf7! Kxf7 7.Nc3 N6b4 is castling or the direct a3 or even d4 the correct method of killing the king????? i look forward to your views...

I thought... 7. Qf3+ Ke6 (keeping the knight) was correct

Or after Nc3 Be6. After N6b4 a3 is winning I think.

The fried liver can get very complicated so I avoid it by playing 3..Be7:) (Hungarian defence:) Just get good with this and you'll never need to study all the theory of the fried liver.

Fried Liver Well, the main line is 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. Ng5 d5 5. exd5 Nxd5 6. Nxf7 Kxf7 7. Qf3+ Ke6 8. Nc3 Ncb4. Then either 9. Qe4 or 9. a3 is playable. I'm not up to date on the current Fried Liver theory, but last I knew Black was able to secure an advantage in the 9. Qe4 line with 9... c6 10. a3 Na6 11. d4 Nac7 12. Bf4 Kf7. Not sure what the evaluation on the 9. a3 line is, but the recommendation is 9. a3 Nxc2+ 10. Kd1 Nd4 11. Bxd5+ Kd6.

Of course White can get a better position through the simple 6. d4, which is the generally preferred continuation. For example, if 6... Be7 then 7. Nxf7 gives White an improved version of the Fried Liver. And Black has other, more active ways to avoid the Fried Liver other than the Hungarian (notably with 5... Na5 or 3... Bc5, but also with 5... b5!?, 5... Nd4!?, 4... Bc5!?, etc., or by avoiding 1... e5 altogether). So, while fun to play, most of the Fried Liver theory is moot in actual tournament practice.
