  fredthebear: 8...Ng4 was a shocker, but of course it leads to a queen fork, recouping the piece. Still, Black sure looks all bent out of shape in this one.

I do like Black piling on the pin with 23...Rc8 causing White to respond with the odd looking 24.Bb4 to save the bishop from capture as the pinned pawn on d2 cannot move. Black does not accomplish much after that.
