Hi there
looking at the theoretical line 1. e4 e5 2.f4 Bc5 3.Nf3 d6 4.c3 f5 5.fxe5
dxe5
6.d4 exd4 7.Bc4 fxe4 8.Ng5 Nf6 9. Nf7 Qe7 10.Nxh8 Nc6(!)
I think the situation is quite something.
Anyone here experienced in this line, or can refer to some analysis article
?
Thanks.

Looks very convincing, 16. Nf3!! is a real winner. Black gave up
early, but it was a correspondance game. The game could continue
21...Be3 (threat was Nh6) 22. Re1 Qe4 23. Nf2 Qf4 24. Qh6+ Qxh6 25.
Nxh6 Bxh6 26. Re7+. Apparently Black thought White had a winning
advantage here.

The question is if Black can play 12...Qxf6. After 13. Qh5+ g6 14.
Qxh7 dxc3 15. Rf1 (Black wins after 15. Nxc3 Qf2+ 16. Kd1 Bg4+)
15...cxb2 16. Rxf6 bxa1Q 17. Qg8+ Kd7 18. Qe6+ Kd8 19. Qg8+ the game
ends in a perpetual.

15.Ng6+ 1-0

14...Bg4? is a blunder, 14...Qg7 (attacks g2) 15. Qh4 (counterattacks
f6 and e4) 15...Bg4 (threat Bf3) 16. Rf1 f5 looks good for Black.

14. Bb3 may be not as sharp as 14. Nd2 (see game before) but 14. Bd5
with the plan Bxe4 could be a good alternative.

12. cxd4 is too dangerous for White.

17.Re1 e3+ 18.Rxe3+ Nxe3 19.Kxe3 Nc6 20.Kxd3 Rd8+ 21.Ke2 Rxh8 1/2

Pretty much forced after 12. Qxg4. If White plays for advantage he
should look for another 11th or 12th move. Perhaps 11. b4 (doesn't
want to block the b-pawn when forced to Qb3), 11. Bf4 (controls e5),
or 12. Qb3.

25.Rhf1 Rxh8 26.Rf2 Rd8 27.Re3 Be8+ 28.Kc5 Ne5 29.Rg3+ 0-1

20. Ke2 was a mistake, but after 20. Kd1 c6 21. Bf3 Nf2+ Black will
remain with a pawn more and should be better.

14. Qh6+ is not a good move.

23.Rxe1 Qxe1+ 24.Bxe1 Be3+
25.Bd2 Rxd2 1-0

Score should be 0-1 as Black has a winning position. The threat is Rd5
mate. 26. b4 Nd3+ 27. Kb1 (27. Bxd3 Rf2+ 28. Kd1 Bxd3 29. Nd6+ cxd6
and 30. Rf1 mate) 27...Nf2+ and White can only delay the mate. 26. Ne4
Rd3+ 27. Kc2 Rxa3 28. bxa3 Bxe4 -+.

This game proves again that White should avoid cxd4.

Games are from chesslive.de.

My take: After 11. Bg5 Ne5 12. Bxf6 gxf6 13. Qh5+ Black is probably in
trouble. Perhaps 12...Qxf6 works, maybe not. With perfect play from
White the compensation for the rook is doubtful, but Black has
practical chances.
