  kevinatcausa: Sooner or later that last move's going to show up as a puzzle...ouch indeed.
Nov-07-10  Tomlinsky: Oh dear. I imagine Perelshteyn was thinking this tournament couldn't get any worse before the clocks started for this game.
Nov-07-10  cjgone: Wow, huge blunder by a 2500+ elo player..

<licuan: a 14 move win?>

Yep, 14 ♘e3-d5! shows you the power of Game Collection: THE UNDERRATED REMOVAL OF THE GUARD -- Heisman.

Perelshteyn resigned as he was losing a whole piece.

Nov-09-10  Xeroxx: <Wow, huge blunder by a 2500+ elo player..> Well he can just as well quit playing altogether.
Aug-15-14  Xeroxx: Qh5 is a very long move.

  perfidious: Perelshteyn was not exactly 'owned' in this game; he blundered. Happens to the greatest players.

This variation is actually fairly harmless for Black, with a clear improvement in the natural 13....Bb4 introduced two months after this game in Fressinet vs Efimenko, 2011.

Oct-23-14  Ke2: Come on, winning in 14 is ownage, he probably spent 30 seconds blitzing out Evans prep. I think Christiansen owned Karpov as well.

I did see that Fressinet game and it seems like White doesn't have much of course. As you'd expect from any 3. Bc4 thing.

Aug-07-18  WorstPlayerEver: 13... Qa6 gives Black an advantage.

  patzer2: Black's 13...Qh5?? allows 14. Nd5! +-, simultaneously attacking the overloaded Knight on f6 and the unprotected Bishop on e7.

If 14...Qxd1, the zwischenzug 15. Nxe7+ Kh8 16. Rxd1 wins a piece.

Instead of 13...Qh5??, <WorstPlayerEver> correctly observes <13...Qa6 gives Black the advantage>.
