Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-11-06  prinsallan: 7... Bd6 is kind of silly. Much better is Nf6.
10.. Qh4 is even more silly. This is not a good Knightsac and causes this game to be lost badly.

I wonder what Black was thinking here.

  Chessical: <"The first move in an unsound combination (move 9): Captain Mackenzie informs us that planning the following sacrifice, he entirely overlooked the power of White's 12th move.">
