  fredthebear: This opening is very similar to the Matovinsky Gambit in the Owen Defense.

* Greco vs NN, 1619

* C M Fisher vs Robert Smith, 1873

* G den Broeder vs W Wegener, 1982

May-06-22  TheBish: White missed 44. Nc3! Ra8+ (not 44...Kxc3?? 45. Bxe5+) 45. Kb2 Rf8 46. Na4 Rxf5 47. Nxc5+ and Black is no longer winning. In fact, Stockfish calls this ± (winning) for White. Kraai should have played either 43...Kf3 44. Bxe5 Ra8+ 45. Kb2 Kxe2, or 43...Ra8+ 44. Kb2 Kf3, transposing.
