  Gypsy: <9...Nh5!?> Perhaps an unintended gambit?

<12.Nb5?!> It was probably better to let well-enough alone. The a-pawn turns out not to be worth the troubles.

<14.Qxb5 f5> Black has a fair compensation for the a-pawn just in the open a-file. To this, add better Black development, soft White pawn on d5, and White problems with castling.

<23.O-O-O Ra4> While White is still the pawn up, Black dominates all open and semiopen files and ranks (a,e,f,4,5 -- just name it).

<25...Bxf2!> A realy cool move. The point is that 26.Bxf2 Rxf2! 27.Qxf2... walks into unstopable checkmates: 27...Rc4+ 28.Kd2 Qc2+ 29.Ke1 (29.Ke3 Qe4+ 30.Kd2 Rc2#) Re4+ 30.Kf1 Qxd1+ 31.Qe1 Qxe1#. Black position now quickly becomes completely winning.
