  tamar: Sure gets wild quick. A little echo here of his most famous promotion game Bogoljubov vs Alekhine, 1922

  THE pawn: Surely that was an obvious move, but I think I wouldn't have played it, considering the queen's always been my main arsenal...I wouldn't have taken the chance, unless I was 3409% sure.

It might go 13. Rxc5 0-0 14. Re5 Bd6 15. Re2 Qc7 16. h3 Rfe8. Black has a huge lead in development, but White can probably hold out for a while and it's definitely better than the game line.
