Sep-28-09  addiction to chess: How could such a wild game such as this go unnoticed? Just look at the position after 14...Nf5!

  GrahamClayton: <addiction to chess>How could such a wild game such as this go unnoticed? Just look at the position after 14...Nf5!

<addiction to chess>, Yes, a crazy position after 14..♘f5, with 3 pieces en prise.

White sacrificed his Queen for not enough compensation with 16.♕b8.

Adorjan's analysis suggested that best for White was 16.♕a4, retreating the Queen to a useful defensive square, after which play continues 16...♗d3 17.f6 ♔g8 18.fg7 ♕e7+ 19.♘e4 ♕e4+ 20.♗e3 ♔g7 21.0-0-0.

White has completed his development and is a pawn up.

May-18-18  Retireborn: Is anything known about the occasion/tournament this game is from?

It's not from the Tungsram that year. Google/Di Felice list at least 11 other events in Budapest alone, so tracking it down may be impossible.
