That would make a good pun for Game of the Day.

I couldn't find a forcing line for Black after 12. ♔g1. 12...♘g4?? loses the Queen after 13. ♖xe4+, while 12...♗g4 doesn't seem to lead to anything after 13. ♕e1. Maybe 12...♗f5 followed shortly by ...0-0-0 is the best plan.

  FSR: <wordfunph> <GrahamClayton> After 11.Re3, wouldn't Black prefer 11...Ng4+ 12.Kg1 Nxe3 13.dxe3 Qxc4?
