  Honza Cervenka: <gambitfan> 7...f6 is not blunder. In fact, it is perfectly playable and sound move. After 8.c4 Qe6! black simply wins a piece (9.Qh5+ g6 10.Nxg6 Qf7 etc.). AA instead of that with 8...Qd4!? went knowingly into the line with sac of exchange for quick development and deadly attack but then failed to find the most energetic continuation in attack (for example 13...Bc5 14.Qg3 Nh6 15.Nc3 Nf5 16.Nd2 Qd7 17.Qc3 Nh4 18.Qg3 Qh7 with threat Rd3 is crushing; 17...Qd5! 18.Na3 Ne3!! 19.dxe3 Qh5 20.Qd2 Bb4! was another beautiful opportunity to win the game missed by AA). Decisive mistake was 17...Bc5 allowing white to trade the Queens with consolidation of position with extra material.
