Kibitzer's Corner
May-09-21  Delboy: 12. Bxf7+ is a marvellous combination if it is sound. Is it sound? Is this perhaps even a known opening trap? Or is this Vaganian at his most carefree?
May-09-21  sudoplatov: Stockfish thinks the sacrifice is about even. (Superficial examination by me.) However, 14...Qb6? seems to be the losing move as 14...Qc7 seems (by SF) to be in Black's favor. After both 14...Qb6 or Qc7, Black should (SF) reply to 16.Qg6+ with 15...Bf6 (protecting the g-Pawn.)
