  kbob: I doubt anyone will ever read this, but what about 8. ...h5?!. The first point is 9. fxe4 is a perpetual after 9. ...Qxg5+ because white must guard his queen and I don't think 10. Kd2 allowing 10. ...Qxf4+ with check is feasible. If 9. Nxh5, Rxh5! and the rook cannot be captured because 10. Nxh5, Bxf3+ 11. Kxf3, Qxh5+ wins the queen. Perhaps that leaves something like 9. Bg2, Bg6 which to me looks at least playable for black.
Mar-03-15  shivasuri4: <kbob>, I am not so sure of that. After 8...h5 9.Bg2 Bg6 10.Nxg6 fxg6 11.g5, Black's queen appears to be in some trouble.
