  OhioChessFan: "Pertti Little Combo"
Jun-30-20  Brenin: Black's defensive play looks more like that in a bad blitz game than correspondence chess.
Jun-30-20  7he5haman: 13...Nc5 just kicks the Queen to where it wants to go.

13...Be7 14.Qc2 Nf8

Or maybe even

13...d5 14.Qc2 Be7 15.Qg6+ Kf8

Both look more tenacious but still horrible.

Jun-30-20  7he5haman: Indeed:

13...Be7 14. Qc2 Nf8 with Nc6, Qd7 and 0-0-0 to follow doesn't look too bad for Black


13...d5 14. Qc2 Be7 15. Qg6+ Kf8 16. f5! Looks very good for White.
