  zanzibar: <Bfan> it's not near a forced win, but Black has messed up to the point where the game offers no joy and only misery by continuing.

A pawn down, wrecked position, no castling or prospects, and the game is only beginning against an able opponent.

What's funny is that 9...Kxf7 10.Ng5+ is better than 10.Ne5+ out to 18-ply on Stockfish. That, I didn't expect.

But then again, I missed this line:

9...Kxf7 10.Ng5+ Kg6?

11.Qc2+ Kxg5 12.d4+ Kh5 13.Bxb7 Ra7?? 14.Bf3+ Ng4 15.Bxg4+ Kxg4 16.Qe4+ Kh5 17.g4+ Kh4 18.Qe5 Kxg4 19.f3+ Kh4 20.Qg3+ Kh5 21.Qg4#

  OhioChessFan: I got to messing with it and chose Ng5+ first myself. No particular reason, just wanted the Knight out of the way of the soon to advance center Pawns. In any event, 9. Ng5 or e5+ K moves 10. Bxb7 and Black is a Pawn down, King out of place, poor Pawn structure, but I'm still surprised at the resignation.

  zanzibar: <OCF> you and I are clearly different - that's no way I'd pick Ng5 over Ne5 for my first think here.
