  FSR: I'd never seen 6.Qe2 before. It didn't work out too well.
Dec-17-17  siggemannen: Does 10. Qxd8 work?

  WorstPlayerEver: Kinda ironic; after 10. Be2 White's King got stuck in the center.

Position after 13... Ba6

10. Nc3 seems a better option.

  FSR: <siggemannen> Seems playable, e.g. 10.Qxd8 Bb4+ 11.Kd1 Rxd8+ 12.Bd3 Ng4 13.Be3. Black has a big initiative, but at least queens are off the board, and White has her two extra pawns to console her.

  Breunor: According to Stockfish, the game was even -0.08) after move 12, and the losing move is 13 Qe3 which puts the position at less than -2. Stockfish gave 13 Nf1; I suspect the idea is after 13 Qe3 it opens the a6-f1 diagonal for black to plY Ba6.
