  tpstar: The Modern Two Knights with the tricky 5. Qe2!?. 6 ... Bg4 is better than 6 ... a6 7. Bxc6+ bxc6 8. Nxe5 Qd6 9. d4 (Zoubida-Ghuloum, Mamaia 1991) or 6 ... Be7 7. d3 Nc5 8. Nxe5 Bd7 9. Bxc6 bxc6 10. Bg5 Ne6 11. Bxe7 Qxe7 12. f4 (Mestel-Bellin, Clacton 1974). Black showed mega cojones with 9 ... f6 10. Qxc6+ Kf7!?, then 11. d4 ed, probably intending 12. Nxd4 Bc5 13. Be3 Qd7 before White gets 14. f3 in. 18. Qxd5+ was out due to 18 ... Kg6 19. Nc3 Qg5+ gets Queens off. Black consolidated the extra material nicely.
