  offramp: One of those games where White overdoes the sacrificing very early on, and thinks that the only hope of saving the game is to throw everything available at the opponent in the hope if inducing an error.

After every single resource is used, the defender makes two good moves and the game ends immediately.

The attacker has had a bit of fun but goes home with a big fat duck egg on the scoresheet.
The winner is slightly annoyed at being used as a punchbag for three hours, but he has scored one point and feels a little better as he goes to sleep that night.

It starts off as a Muzio Gambit, the best possible way for White to play the KG. He has to open lines and this is the best way.

White hammered away, giving material away all over the place, but he missed the winner!
Black played 19...Kd8?
