  Phony Benoni: A stirring win, which must have left Black shaken.
Oct-13-14  The17thPawn: <Phony Benoni> - Not stirred?

  An Englishman: Good Evening: If the database is any indication, 5.f4 is a dastardly little mousetrap, and only 6...Bf2+ might allow Black to escape (J Enevoldsen vs F Kuijpers, 1964).

  FSR: <An Englishman> 5.f4 Ng4? 6.f5! has long been known to be strong. Instead, 5...Nc6 transposing to a King's Gambit Declined is normal. Some other moves, such as 5...Be6!?, may also be playable. Opening Explorer
Oct-13-14  alfiepa: a beautiful kinh hunt !
Oct-13-14  MikeB20: Black missed a mate in 12 beginning with 21...Bb4+ 22. c3 Qe3+

  sfm: <MikeB20: Black missed a mate in 12 beginning with 21...Bb4+ 22. c3 Qe3+> Chess - the undeserved outcome's game indeed!

  Bubo bubo: <MikeB20: Black missed a mate in 12 beginning with 21...Bb4+ 22. c3 Qe3+> Nice finding!

But 21...Bb4+ is easy to miss: at first glance a check that can be parried by interposing a pawn which in turn attacks the checking piece does not look promising; you have to realise that, contrary to Bf2+, it allows the queen to join the attack <with check>.

Oct-13-14  Cheapo by the Dozen: Ahh. The difference in <MikeB20>'s line is that White can no longer play Kd1. Either move clears the way for Black's queen to get to e3, but only one choice clears the path all the way to g1.

  Penguincw: I counted that white had 28 moves, and 13 of them were delivering check to black. Must be a nightmare to black's king.
Oct-13-14  SpiritedReposte: Too bad he missed that mate. No way I could see all 12 moves but it looks like White's king will take a walk up the queenside.

  kevin86: The queen goes now...and the king later.
Oct-13-14  psmith: <MikeB20>: Meanwhile White missed a mate in 14 beginning with 15. Bxf7+. The magic of computers. (And it is a cute one too, involving a clever little King dance.)
Oct-14-14  SpiritedReposte: !! Variations please! Not everyone's got deep junior fritz 20!

  Bubo bubo: <SpiritedReposte> I'll try to help you: 15.Bxf7+, and now

A) 15...Kd8/Kf8 16.Qg8+ Ke7 (or 16...Nf8 17.Qxf8+ Kd7 18.Qe8#) 17.Qe8+ Kf6 18.Bg6!, and Black has no sufficient defense against the threat of Qf7#:

A1) 18....N~ 19.Q(x)f8+ and 20.Qxf7#
A2) 18...Kg7 19.Qf7+ and 20.Qh7#
A3) 18...g4 19.h4 gxh4 e.p. 20.Nf3, and the escape route is closed again.

B) 15....Ke7 16.Qe6+ Kf8 (or Kd8 17.Qe8#) 17.Qe8+ Kg7 18.Qg8+ Kf6 (or Kh6 19.Qg6/Qh8#) 19.Bg6, and again Black has no sufficient defense: he can neither cover f7 effectively nor run with his king, so he can only postpone mate by some despair moves, e.g. 19...g4 20.h4 gxh4 e.p. 21.Nf3 Qa5+ 22.c3 Qxc3+ 23.bxc3 Bf2+ 24.Kd1 Ke7 25.Qe8+ Kf6 26.Qf7# (that's 12 moves including Bxf7+)

(All the above comes without warranty, as I did it w/o a computer and after I have had some beer!)

Oct-15-14  SpiritedReposte: Thank you <bubo> there's no way I could have found that OTB, or afterward without a computer for that matter. I would have had to see it move by move and most likely botched it.

I like how the queen is running circles around the black king. It seems a crucial move to find is Bg6.

Lol analysis with no warranty, the only kind I analyze!

  Bubo bubo: You're welcome <SpiritedReposte> !

The queen circuiting the bishop is indeed pretty to watch. Reminds me a bit of the following problem:
