  Mating Net: If this sort of attack is going to work after 8.Nxe6+, you need to have the Queen poised to join the fray. The White Queen was nowhere near the danger zone the entire time.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: <Mating Net>, much to my great surprise, it turns out that this piece sacrifice is normal and apparently sound opening theory. In fact, this game follows Ramesh vs V Parikh, 2005 all the way to move 14, when Stefansson played the novelty Bf7. Perhaps that's where White started to go wrong?

  luzhin: This is, of course, the variation Kasparov played in the sensational final game of his 1997 match v Deep Blue: he tried 8...Qe7 before capturing on e6 and...we all know what happened next.

  GrahamClayton: Instead of the forcing 12. ♘e5, the quieter 12. c4, as seen in M Skjoldager vs Rasmus L Haugland, 2015, may be better, gaining space and forcing Black to come up with a sensible long-term plan.
