  khan76: how come on move 10 he didn't capture back with the queen?
May-19-18  FredGambit: I don't see any tactical refutation to 10 Qxf3, though I'm not a very good player. I suppose he simply recaptured with the bishop in accordance with the plan he had in mind, and the bishop needed to be off the g2 square for white to play Kg2.
