  Honza Cervenka: Very nice example of Muzio gambit. If 22...Nb5, then 23.Ne8+ Kh6 24.Bf7 d5 (white threatened Rf5 and Rh5#; 24...Kg5 25.g3 ) 25.h4 threatening 26.Rf6#
May-18-04  Hinchliffe: <Honza Cervenka> Thanks for the analysis Honza much appreciated. A typical example of gambits in the 19th century.Chess seemed to be more cavalier in those distant days.

  whiteshark: 20.Qxf4 though winning was poor and not in the spirit of a Muzio Gambit.

<20.Qe4!!> was the move that wins immediately.

Crushing threat is 21.Qe8 / 22. Qg8+ / 23.Nf5+ or Ne4+
