  Jonathan Sarfati: Very energetic win by the veteran. Last move could be a puzzle.

  fredthebear: This finish is a variation of Deadly Checkmate 15 in "How to Beat Your Dad at Chess" by Murray Chandler. The reader should first refer to Deadly Checkmate 14, which is Boden's Mate. The queen sacrifice cracks the pawn structure for the mating unit to enter.

The Leonhardt Gambit 4.b4 (a.k.a. Mieses-Kotrvc gambit) looks a bit ridiculous, but it's quite playable. There is a slower version 4.Nf3 and 5.b4. Or, support the pawn push 4.Rb1 and 5.b4.

  Jonathan Sarfati: There is an echo of sorts: if 17... b6 then 18.Rxb6!
