|Oct-29-12|| ||newzild: Black managed to keep White's king in the centre by planting his queen on the b6-g1 diagonal, and this led to an interesting middlegame with lots of pins and knight maneouvers.|
White did well to survive to an endgame with equal material, but he is lost on the final position.
At first glance Black's win is not so easy, but in fact he has a straightforward plan.
First he puts his king on g5, where it threatens to attack White's e5-f6 pawn chain. White has to keep his knight on d6 and his king on e3 to prevent this infiltration. Black then creates a passed pawn by advancing his k-side pawn roller, forcing White's king away to prevent queening. Black then gobbles the e5 pawn.

|Oct-29-12|| ||C4gambit: <HeMateMe> 18.g3 Nh3 19.QxN Qe3+ 20.Kd1 (Kf1 Qf2#) Nf2+ and the rook falls. That is so far I can get, may be other lines.|
|Oct-29-12|| ||Honza Cervenka: <HeMateMe: Can white win a piece with 18. g3?>|
No, after 18.g3 black has a pretty tactical trick 18...Qe3+ 19.Qxe3 Ng2+ or 19.Kd1 Qxe4 20.Bxe4 Ne3+ 21.Ke1 Nfd5 etc. to save the piece with some edge.
|Oct-29-12|| ||Honza Cervenka: <C4gambit: <HeMateMe> 18.g3 Nh3 19.QxN Qe3+ 20.Kd1 (Kf1 Qf2#) Nf2+ and the rook falls. That is so far I can get, may be other lines.> It's possible but maybe not the best way to avoid loss of piece as here white wins two pieces for Rook. His position looks messy in the end of forced line but if he consolidates it, black can be in troubles. 18...Qe3+ looks much safer.|

|Oct-29-12|| ||5hrsolver: With white's king in the center and blacks pieces swarming I was surprised the game went to endgame.|
|Oct-29-12|| ||King Sacrificer: Agreed <5hrsolver>. What's the aim of playing King's Gambit if you are not gonna castle to the kingside early in the game?|
|Oct-29-12|| ||master of defence: Why white give a pawn at endgame with 42.Nd4??|
|Oct-29-12|| ||WhiteRook48: <master of defence> White probably didn't want to allow 42...Bxb3.|
