Aug-14-13  optimal play: 7...♕f6 is the start of Black's problems.

Compare 7...c6 M Duke vs B Ewart, 2006 which is not much better.

Maybe 7...♘f6 would be an improvement, although probably best not to play this defence at all.

  fredthebear: The finish could go 17...Bd4 18.RxBd4+ Kc8 (or Ke8) 19.Rf8+ Qe8 20.RxQe8#. Black's interpositions are useless and unnecessary, so he resigned.
