  fredthebear: Both sides come out swinging in this one. 3...Nh5 4.Be5 is unusual and sets the stage for uncommon moves to follow.

White sacrifices the bishop and knight for a brief kingside attack, winning back the sidelined Black knight and removing the option to castle, but has no further follow-up. White misses his sacrificed knight in the end.

Then Black conducts a swift, successful kingside counterattack of his own. Some players would miss the two Black rook moves on the h-file that move the attack along nicely.

In the final position, Black threatens 20...Qh2#. 20.g3? allows 20...NxBf3+ w/an Arabian mate to follow. If White's pawn captures the rook 20.gxRh3 NxBf3+ forcing 21.Kg2 (not 21.Kh1?? Qh2#) w/a double attack on the knight, so 21...Nh4+ forces another king move. Black can then play 22...Bxe6 to free the cornered rook to come over to the open g-file. Black has the extra piece and four active pieces in the king hunt.
