  Phony Benoni: A neat, if unimportant point, arises after <29...Nb3+>

White is getting inevitably mated in this position. The really interesting line is finding the mate in three after the computer-interposition <30.Qd6>.

Oct-30-15  syracrophy: <Phony Benoni> 30...♕d4+ perhaps? 31.♕xd4 ♖xd4+ 32.♔c2 ♘xa1# The clue lies in covering c4.

If either 11.dxc6 or 11.dxe6, White loses his queen:

11.dxc6 Bxc4 and White can only save her by 12.Qxe7 Rxe7+ which runs into a quick mate.

11.dxe6 Qb4+ 12.Nbd2 Rxe6.

The Icelandic Gambit, like the Blackmar-Diemer or Morra Gambits for White, is speculative but can also lead to spectacular results against the unwary.

Oct-30-15  bcokugras: Thanks, Phony Benoni.

  kevin86: A brilliant hopping performance by the knight!
Oct-30-15  Helios727: Would white have been better off playing "5. d3" in the opening?
