Jul-06-20  Delboy: Lots of "wow!" moments in this short but highly entertaining game, beginning with the early pseudo-queen sacrifice 8. ... Ne4, followed by the surrender of the knight with 13. ... Nc6 for the rapid deployment of the rooks onto the files targeting the castled king, to the mating torpedo 20. ... Rxb2+! 21. Ka1 (21. Kxb2 Qxc2 transposes into the game continuation more quickly) Rb1+ 22. Kxb1 Qxc2+ 23. Ka1 Qc1+ 24. Ka2 Rc2+ 25. Kb3 Rb2+ 26. Ka4 Qc4+ 27. Ka5 Qb5#

  fredthebear: Quick strike!

Black's unpin for a fast counterattack using all his pieces reminds one of the great Paul Morphy. White's back rank pays for failing to develop the Ng1.

The early exchange of queens was a better way to handle the unpin. 9.BxQd8 NxQc3 10.bxNc3 KxBd8 etc. gives White a slight edge without the queenside fireworks.
