  FSR: You don't often see someone beat the hell out of his opponent with Alapin's Opening. Cf. L Mouillaux vs J M Matisson, 1985 (0-1, 11) or L Mouillaux vs J M Matisson, 1986 (0-1, 11) - your choice.
May-06-14  Jamboree: White also missed an easy crushing win several moves earlier with 17. Qxf8+! Rxf8 18. Rxf8+ Kc7 19. Bd8+! Kd6 (forced) 20. e7! and white will win the queen back and be a pure rook up for nothing.

  kevin86: Windmill time! First, if black takes the queen, white caps the bishop and then uses his black-squared bishop to execute a pretty cross-fire mate.

  Domdaniel: <Jamboree> Well spotted. I *thought* that 17.Qxf8+ should win, but I didn't look very deeply.
May-06-14  htjsparta: <kevin86> White has a cleaner win: 23. ... Bxg7 24. Rxg7+ Kb8 25. Rb1+ with mate to follow.
May-06-14  sfm: <kevin86: 23 ... Bxg7 24 Rxg7+ Kb8 25 Rb7+ Ka8 26 Bf4+ Ne5 27 Bxe5#> On the spot, just take out the 25th moves.

Rock-bottom lousy pun :-(
May-06-14  sfm: The move 19.dxc! surprised me at first, White gives away a tempo. What he gains is that Black can't close off the white bishop with c5-c4. Also, the tempo turns out to be an illusion, as black must move his bishop back to cover c7.
