  tpstar: Fritz 10: 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. d4 exd4 5. e5 d5 6. Bb5 Ne4 7. Nxd4 Bc5 8. 0-0 0-0 9. Bxc6 bxc6 10. f3 f6 11. exf6 Qxf6 12. Be3 Ba6 13. Re1 Rae8 14. c3 Bd6 15. g3 Nxg3 16. hxg3 Bxg3 17. Na3 [last book move] Bxe1 18. Qxe1 c5 19. Ndc2 d4 [19 ... Qg6+ 20. Kf2 d4 21. cxd4 ] 20. cxd4 [20. Qg3 dxe3 21. Rd1 Re6 ] Qg6+ 21. Kf2 Qg4 22.

This gambit line of the Modern Two Knights scores well for Black = Opening Explorer

So this is all theory up to 17. Na3 yet White's game is hard to hold. Note 23. Bxd4 Re2+ 24. Kf1 Rh2+, and 23. Nxd4 Rxe3! 24. Kxe3 Qf4+ 25. Kf2 Qxd4+ 26. Kg3 (26. Kg2 Rxf3! 27. Kxf3 Bb7+) Qe5+ with a rout (27. Kg2/Kf2 Qxb2+).
