  al wazir: Why not 5...Nxg3 ? If 6. fxg3, then 6...Qe4+. If 6. Bxf7+, then 6...Kd8, winning the exchange (not 6...Kxf7 7. Qd5+ Ke8 8. hxg3).

What about 5...Nxg3 6.Bxf7+ Kd8 7.Bg5+ [see diagram]

e.g. 7...Qxg5 8.hxg3 Qxe5+ 9.Qe2 and Black does have to trade Queens (9...Qxb2?? 10.Qe8#)

It would probably be hard for White to hold the game though.

I think 15 0-0-0 was stupid, 15 c3 bails the Q out
