Mar-11-12  thomastonk: <drunkenknight: why not 13...Ne3?> 14.Qd2, and then the knight is in trouble, I assume: 14.. Bxd4 15.Qxd4 Nxf1 16.Kxf1 and White has a clear advantage.

14. Qd2 runs into 14...Qxh2+! 15. Kxh2 Nxf1+

14. Qc1 looks forced, then 14...Bxd4 15. Na3 Qh6 16. Re1 seems better for white, although still a fairly unclear position.

Mar-11-12  thomastonk: <Jason Frost> Oh, yes, Qxh2+! Thanks.
Mar-01-13  copablanco: This game is a great chess lecture as most of his games are regarding quick development, and creating space by pushing the pawns aggressively.
