Dec-05-03  MoonlitKnight: Funny, I played the exact same game at FICS. After 8.♘xh8, mate is forced. But what really escapes me is why anyone would want to play a move like 7.♔e3??. I guess the white players are somewhat greedy in the first place to play 5.♘xf7 instead of 5.♗cf7+.
Mar-06-07  Rubenus: 7. Ke3 is not that bad although 7. Kg1 is preferable, indeed. If white knows what he's doing there is nothing wrong with 5. Nxf7.
May-24-08  jon01: Mate is quicker after 8. ...Qf4+ 9. Kd3 Nb4+ 10. Ke2 Qf2#
Nov-18-18  thegoldenband: <jon01: Mate is quicker after 8. ...Qf4+ 9. Kd3 Nb4+ 10. Ke2 Qf2#>

White can hold out one move longer than that with 9. Ke2 Qf2+ 10. Kd3 Nb4+ 11. Kxe4 Qf4# (or 10...Nc5+ 11. Kc3 Qd4#), but it's still two moves quicker than the game (which should end 12...Qxc4 13. Ka3 Qb4#, in case any beginners are reading).
