Dec-18-05  MorphyMatt: Is 5... Bxf2+ really sound? What about 8. Ke2 or 8. Ke1?

  OBIT: After 6...Bxf2+ 7. Kxf2 Ng4+:

If 8. Ke1 then 8...Ne3 9. Qh5 (or 9. Qe2/f3 Nxc2+ followed by 10...Nxa1, winning material) Nxc2+ looks promising for Black, one key tactical point being 10. Kd1? Bg4+! 11. Qxg4 Ne3+. Since 10. Kf1 or 10. Kf2 would allow 10...Qf6+ followed by 11...Nxa1, 10. Ke2 has to be the best try. At this point, Black can decide whether to play gambit-style with something like 10...Nc6 11. Rb1 O-O (he has two pawns for a piece and White's position is a mess - seems like a good deal) or go for material advantage with 10...Nxa1 11. Qxe5+ Kf8, when trapping the Black knight looks awkward. In the latter line, I think at worst Black will come out with a rook and two pawns for two pieces.

Having said that, I don't see what's so bad about 8. Ke2(!). Black only gets one pawn for the piece, and the position of the White king isn't as uncomfortable as it may look at first glance. So, <MorphyMatt>, I'm inclined to agree with you - the bishop sac in this game doesn't seem sound.

Jun-26-08  JonathanJ: i think after 8. Ke2 this is a possible continuation:

8. Ke2 Qd4
9. Nb3 Qf2+
10. Kd3 Qxg2
11. Qf3 Nf2+
12. Ke2 Qxf3+
13. Nxf3 Nxh1
14. Nxe5 0-0
15. Bf4 Nxg3+
16. Bxg3 Re8

black has got the material advantage but i think he has to play very carefully.

Jun-26-08  JonathanJ: or probably:

8. Ke2 Qd4
9. Nf1 Qxd1+
10. Kxd1 Nf2+
11. Ke2 Nxh1

looks about even.

Jun-09-09  ROADDOG: ouch!
Oct-20-13  rodantero: 6...Bxf2 only leads to a draw (with best moves), but 6...Ng4!! wins. An example is below...
