  An Englishman: Good Evening: Sharply played gambit in our Opening of the Day! Unzicker shows a lot of daring by first eschewing the perfectly sound main line pawn sac (...Qd4) in favor of ...Be6, and then refuses to regain the pawn in favor of the initiative. He wraps up the game with a Thursday-Friday quality combination (you have to see the first four moves for full credit).

This is the only occurrence of 8...Be6 in the database, and deserves a close look.
