  profK: More folks would play the Chigorin if they got results like this. Sammy looks like he has a rating of 1200 here.
Jan-03-11  Sparta: Ouch 15. f3 blunders a pawn away to 15. ... Nxd4 16. exd4 Qxd4+ 17. Kh1 Nxd2

Better may have been 15. Nb3 first and then trying to land on the c5 square. White doesn't look too bad here due to the half-open b- and c-files.

May-12-12  King Death: White could have tried 15.Qc4 instead if he wanted to trade queens or the move <Sparta> suggested 15.Nb3 but in the middle game Black should have at least as many attacking chances and he has a good grip on the light squares so I think he's at least equal.

  Fusilli: <Sparta: Ouch 15. f3 blunders a pawn away to 15. ... Nxd4 16. exd4 Qxd4+ 17. Kh1 Nxd2>

Not 17.Kh1, where 17...Ng3+ gobbles the queen. White needs to play 17.Bf2, where black plays Qxd2 and ends up two pawns up.
