  beenthere240: It would have been fun to watch the bloodshed if Barda had "completed" his combination with 14. Bxa8. for example 14...Qb6 looks annoying. As played, white just throws in the towel a piece down by castling and gets slaughtered anyway.

  Benzol: It's no wonder he castled. I imagine that if 14.Bxa8 then 14...Qb6 15.Qe2 Ba6 16.Qxg4 Qe3+ 17.Ne2 Qd2+ 18.Kf2 Rf8+ would have been a dreadful way to have carried on.
