  whiteshark: 6.Nd4 Qh4+ 7.Ke2 g3 8.Qe1 is best and keeps the fire burning. Also the piece sac 6.d4 gxf3 7.Qxf3 offers some vague compensation.

Can't Black play 8...♕h2 winning a Rook?

  Gilmoy: <GrahamClayton: 8...Qh2 winning a Rook?> Not quite: 9.Rxh2 gxh2 10.Qh4 controls h1! Black's g-pawn was <pinned>, haha ...
Apr-02-11  outplayer: here 9.Be2 and black is winning but there's no immediate mate.
Jan-22-14  rickycota: <Gilmoy> after 10.Qh4 black has Bg3 what do you have?

  FSR: Circa 1974 I repeated this in an offhand game against Norman Vorne. I knew of this game from Chernev's <1000 Best Short Games of Chess>.

  Bubo bubo: Black's last move violates the opening principle <Develop knights before bishops>. I have to criticize that! ;-)
