  patzer2: This game illustrates the importance of not wasting tempo in the opening. With only two time wasting moves (6. a3 and 7. Ne2), White is overwhelmed by Black's unusual gambit after only ten moves.

In the final position, White is either mated or loses decisive material.

If 11. gxf3 Bxf2+ 12. Kg2 Ne3+ 13. Bxe3 Bxh3+ 14. Kh2 Bxf1# (#4)

If 11. Kh1 Nxf2+ 12. Rxf2 Qxf2 13. Bxf7+ Ke7 14. Bh5 Rd8 15. Nd4 Qxd4 16. Qxd4 Nxd4 17. b4 (-5.94 @ 15 depth & 668kN/s per Fritz 8)

According to <Mahamis> (kibitzing on Feb 5, 2004) this opening is called the "Boehnke gambit of the Scandinavian Defence." It should make for a fun try in blitz or skittles.

  MaltaCross: I believe that White's eight move, 8. d4, was a very big mistake. In fact, Black punished him immediately by capturing the d4 pawn without incurring negative repercussions.
