  Ron: I'm wondering if Maroczy's queen sacrifice is sound.

  tpstar: White gets a nice position out of this opening, with 8. b3 & 9. Bb2 for play on the long diagonal, then note 11. h3 preventing enemy pieces on g4. The concept behind 18. Nxh5!! is brilliant, although Black had the simple 20 ... Qxf6 21. Bxf6 Bc6 with an equal game, or 22 ... Kf8 aiming for a repetition of moves instead of going for it with 22 ... Kg7!?. Piquant finishing touch.

tpstar-Pebraham (FICS 1/28/06): 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 ed 4. Nxd4 Nc6 5. Bb5 Bd7 6. Nc3 a6 7. Bxc6 bxc6 8. 0-0 c5 9. Nde2 Be7 10. b3 c6 11. Bb2 Nh6!? 12. Na4 0-0 13. Qd2 Bf6!? 14. Bxf6 Qxf6 15. Rad1 d5 16. Nb6 Rad8 (16 ... Ra7 17. ed Rb7) 17. ed cd 18. Nxd5 Qe5 19. c4 Ng4 20. f4 Qh5 21. h3 Nh6 22. Nec3 Qg6?? 23. Ne7+ 1-0.
