  FSR: The game score must be wrong. 22.Nf7?? is a ridiculous blunder, which Black (rated over 2500) meets with a ridiculous blunder, hanging an exchange instead of taking the free knight. Nor is there any reason that White would resign in the final position, which is winning for him.

... - , though that novelty of <7.Be2?! ...> has been somewhat risky because of the eventual impact of Black Bg7 via the diagonal <h8-a1> (whereas that very impact will have been neutralized after the blocking move of <7.Nc3 ...>). But that careless novelty of <7.Be2?! ...> has paid off in the end since White has won that game R Gralla vs B Schlueter, 1973 - whereas 30 years later White has lost this game here <Charles Gauche vs Darcy Lima (2003)> the more solid approach <7.Nc3 ...> notwithstanding!
