  patzer2: This variation looks something like a Queenside Latvian gambit, with Black sacrificing the Queenside Rook for central pawn and piece counterplay after 4. Qh5 in the Vienna.
Oct-26-04  Marco65: This game seems very interesting, but understanding it is above my head! It took me some time to understand 26.f3 (it controls e4 therefore allowing 26...exd2 27.♕xf5), but I still don't see why not playing 22...exd4 some moves earlier

  patzer2: <Marco65> On second glance, it appears Black pulls off a swindle. White had a win with the obvious 26. Nxf8! but got too cute with the positional 26. f3?, which turns the tables and gives the advantage to Black after the "discovered attack" move 26...Ne4! .

  patzer2: <Marco65> A best move for Black was your recommendation 22...exd4! 23. Be2 = (not 23. cxd4? Qxd4! 24. Bc3 Nxf2! ) Another playable option was 22...e4 Bxg4 . Other moves, such as the game continuation, are bad for Black.
Oct-26-04  Marco65: <patzer2> Also 22...exd4 23.cxd4 doesn't seem that blunder to me, if 23...♕xd4 24.♗c3 ♘xf2? 25.♗xd4 ♘xh3 26.♗xh8

  patzer2: <Marco65> Thanks! You are correct. I had the position set up incorrectly with the Rook on f8. After 22...exd4! 23. Nf3 Re8 24. Nxd4 Nxd4 25. cxd4 Qxd4 Black may well have enough initiative, active piece development and counterplay to balance the position.

Play might continue 26. Bc3 Qe4+ 27. Ka1 Qxg2 28. Bxg4 Qxg4 29. Bf6+ Kc8 30. Qc3+ Bc6 31. Rhg1 Qf5 =
