  maxi: It is a very nice little game. The Queen sacrifice is very exciting and there is no defense to it. It was also possible to win with 14.♘g5, but the Queeen sacrifice is nicer, at least to me, who am not a computer.

It is clear that White was trying at all times to get the h1 Rook into action along the h-file. Thus he avoided castling. Interesting.

Sep-15-11  SirChrislov: I worked out a clever alternate finish to this game, that I discoverd semi-accidentally: It's clear that with the q-sac, white wants to clear the 1st rank of pieces and double rooks on the h-file. I have not analyzed all the lines but if white achieves this, I think his attack will be unstoppable. however, after <16.♗g5>, I think blk can escape with <16...♕b6!?>:

16.Bg5 Qb6 (with this blk threatens 17...Nxe5) 17.Bf5+ Kg8 18.Rh2 g6 (he should stick with the ...Nxe5 idea) 19.Rah1 gxf5 Now it's a mate in 5: 20.Rh8+ Kg7 21.R1h7+ Kg6 22.Nh4+ Kxg5 23.Rg7+ Kf4 24.Ng2#

Apr-14-12  Interbond: This game is a lesson in Chessok's (Convekta) Modern Chess Opening King's Gambit .This lesson is rated 2800 and you are going to guess white's moves from the 11th move

After 16.Bg5 Qb6 17.Rh4 f6 (17...g6 18.Bxg6 Kg7 19.Na4! Qb4 20.Lf5 Rh8 21.Rg1 ) 18.Bg7 Kh8 19.Rah1

I was also thinking 14.Qxf2 but I prefered 14.Ng5. That was wrong even if my Fritz 12 suggested the same move.

Sep-26-14  JohnRed: White can parry the Qb6 idea with simply Rh4. Note he is one move closer to doubling rooks on the h-file while also protecting the crucial d4-square
