Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-23-05  vinohradska: What about 10... Bxf3 as a counter attack? If 11 Bxf7 then black responds with 11... Kf8. Then what can white do to keep the pressure on?

Oct-22-12  e4 resigns: After 11...Bxf3 I would play 12.gxf3 with an eventual Kh1 and Rg1. After 11...Bxf3 12.Bxf7 Kf8 13.gxf3 Nxe5
and then Black looks a lot better, considering the continuation 14.Bxg8 Nxf3 15. Kg2 Nh4. Knight will eventually return via g6 e5, just watch out for the mate and black should be fine.

A mere 1200, so there are probably better lines.
