  Honza Cervenka: All this line looks dubious, although after 7.Qd3 it can be playable. 8.fxe5 is a blunder but in bad position. Black Knights made 9 moves of 11 and especially the Kingside Knight's ride g8-f6xe4xc3xa2xc1-b3 forking Q and R is memorable.
Dec-29-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <Honza> That was some knight ride! Outstanding.
Mar-03-06  McCool: Ouch! That hurts.
Apr-04-11  Wyatt Gwyon: I've had days like this.
Apr-04-11  rapidcitychess: That's one wild knight.

  perfidious: Hard to believe a strong master such as Gallagher could make such a mess in a mere eleven moves.

My first thought was that could this be a misattribution, but I've found two sources which corroborate the game score, along with players.
