Apr-30-06  SJP: 15...Kh8 is horrible. 15...Kg7, although it looks suicidal, survives a little longer:

16. Rae1 Rg8 17. Ng5 Rh8 (17...fxe5 loses to 18. f6+) 18. Nf3 Qd6 19. Nxe5 fxe5 20. f6+ Kg8 (20...Kf8 loses the Queen after 21. Bc4 Be6 [best] 22. Bxe6 fxe6 23. Rd1) 21. Bc4 Qd7 22. Rxe5 Qe6 [best] 23. Qh6 and mate on g7.

Mar-19-16  kubbybulin: Blackburn + NN + King's Gambit = Trainwreck
