  FSR: Very entertaining game! Weird that it's in three game collections, but had no comments until now.
Jan-29-12  King Death: <FSR> Here's another game with this variation (by transposition) and some more interesting tactics: S Del Rio Angelis vs A Stefanova, 2000.

In the final position White gets punished for his lack of development after 23.Bh6 Rh6 24.Qh6 Qe1+ 25. Kg2 Qe2+ 26.Kg1 Qb2.

Aug-30-17  mravikiran: better pun would be "Guy puts Mikael in tensson"
Aug-30-17  newzild: A very good game, though the pun would work better if he were wasn't aged 28 at the time.
Aug-30-17  whiteshark: Thanks, ceegee!
Aug-30-17  backyard pawn: After 20. Qc3, white had set up a mate in two. Too bad for white, it was black's move.
Aug-30-17  bane77: 7.0-0 is a first inaccuracy. 7.Nc3 is better, to protect Be2. 7.Be3 or even 7.Qb3 are good. 9. d5 is a fatal error. 9.h3 is the only move that saves white but it runs into hard-to-see variation: 9.h3 exd4 10. hxg4 Nxg4 11. Bg5 f6 12. Bh4 d3 13. Bxd3 Nb4 14. Ne5 Rxd3 15. Qxg4+ Qxg4 16. Nxg4 Nc2 17. Nc3 Nxa1 18. Rxa1... -0.91 Stockfish 8.

  offramp: Another thriller-diller with this opening is E Rojahn vs M Czerniak, 1939.
