Muzio gambit, Paulsen variation
1. e4 e5 2. f4 exf4 3. Nf3 g5 4. Bc4 g4 5. O-O gxf3 6. Qxf3 Qf6 7. e5 Qxe5 8. d3 Bh6 9. Nc3 Ne7 10. Bd2 Nbc6 11. Rae1

6...Qf6 is the Sarratt Defense.

7.e5 Qxe5 as played is main line, but inserting 7...Bc5+ and then capturing the pawn is playable for Black.

This game was main line up through 8.d3, when Black starts astray by developing the bishop with check, which cannot be all bad.

10.Bxf7+ KxB puts them in Double Muzio waters (Nf3 and Bf7 sacrifices). 11.BxBe3! robs the pinned f-pawn, just hoping the Black queen would re-capture and get executed by her counterpart.

11...Nf6 would develop a piece and provide a touch of relief. 14...Nf6?? is simply useless.

Gedult did not miss a beat. Gill needed to learn a bit more opening theory. The more experienced player wins many short games in this fashion when his opponent's book knowledge runs out.

Here's a four minute video of Karl Marx playing the main line Muzio as given above 100+ years earlier:

FTB provides this for chess purposes only. I love FREEDOM of choice and generally dislike government control/regulations -- telling us what to do and not to do, although government has a duty to keep it's people safe, protected, and educated. "Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" registers with me!! The beauty of chess is that it cuts across all political and cultural ties (most of the time). Chess has allowed me to intermingle with terrific people much different than I, people that I would not have met at the zoo or restaurant, people who do not speak my language, or worship as I. Chess bridges the divide in a most beautiful way!!
