Jan-05-09  YoungEd: Several interesting things to me about this game:

1. What kind of gambit is this? I have never seen it before! I wonder if this was some sort of thematic gambit tournament, or if Black was just brave! Does anyone know much about this "Halibut Gambit?"

2. I could be wrong, but White's problems seem to start as early as move 4. Perhaps 4. e4 would have been better than 4. ♘f3, to prevent Black's pawn push and to blunt the Black ♗'s diagonal a bit.

3. White miscalulates with 11. ♗xd5, which just drops a piece for a pawn after Black's excellent 12. ...♘xe3.

4. Black's last move forks the ♖ on e2 and a mate on h2. Nice game by Black!
