Now 12. Bg5 scores best, followed by the safe 12. Kb1 and the attacking 12. h4. 12. g4!? is less good due to 12 ... b5, and 12. Bh6?! also fares badly due to the stock sacrifice 12 ... Bxh6 13. Qxh6 Rxc3!? 14. bxc3 Opening Explorer .

23. Qg2! sacrifices a Rook to pound g6, and Black can't defend with 25 ... Rg8 due to 26. Qh6#. Sweet attack.
