  fredthebear: Black threatens Scholar's Mate Qxf2# in the intermezzo variation, then re-captures the White knight and castles long. Black temporarily sacrifices the queenside rook for a center pawn and gets the piece back by pinning and piling on the re-capturing White rook. It's a small advantage, but more than enough at this level given pawns are on both sides and Black has the bishop to best the knight.
