<Brief notations from <Chessmaster 7000>>

1.e4 e5 2.♗c4 c6 <More forcing is 2...Nf6 to put pressure on e4> 3.♘f3 d5 4.♗b3 ♗e6 5.O-O <Useless is 5. Nxe5 Qg5> dxe4 6.♘xe5 ♗xb3 7.axb3 ♗d6?! <It's too soon to decide where this bishop belongs. Better is 7...Nf6 awaiting further developments> 8.d4 exd3? <Meets with a diabolical response. More prudent is 8...Nf6> 9.♘c4! ♗e7<It's not easy to castle. If 9...Nf6 10. Qxd3 Be7 11. Qxd8+ Bxd8 (or 11...Kxd8 12. Nb6) 12. Nd6+ picks up material> 10.♕g4 ♘f6?<Preferable is 10...Kf8 or g6> 11.♕xg7 ♖g8 12.♕h6 dxc2 13.♘c3 ♘bd7?? <The losing move. Necessary is 13...Rg6> 14.♖e1! <Black Resigns! Suddenly there is no good defense to the threat of Nd6 mate. If 14...Nf8 15. Qxf6. Or 14...Qc7 15. Bf4> 1-0

A great miniature!

Dec-05-14  TheTamale: Wow, it looks as though Black should be able to get himself out of this, but every approach gets thwarted. Thanks to <syracrophy> for the commentary.
