White gambits a Pawn in the opening for space and development. I was unsure why Black played 14 ... Kf8 instead of 14 ... 0-0 so I used Deep Position Analysis. White's play features two interesting retreats, 18. Bc1 & 21. Qd1 and of course Fritz has other ideas. Note 27. Qxf6 hits f7 and h6 (27 ... Ng6? 28. Qxf7#), so Black tried 27 ... Kg8 but resigned after 28. Rxe7 Rh7 29. Ra3 as the QR joins the attack with decisive effect.
