  An Englishman: Good Evening: Yet another game that the punsters can call "Bachmann Turner Overdrive." However, it is remarkable how White conjures such a powerful attack from such a quiet opening.
Nov-12-15  MindCtrol9: This is a really good game where White kept the attack all the time.
Nov-12-15  Nerwal: <Why didn't White play 26.gh7+?>

This moves rather helps Black - the king will be safer on h7 (and defends the N, which is important when White plays Ba3-c1 in some lines) and therefore White loses time with this capture. Maybe this is still good for White but White's advantage is much more stable after 26. ♔h1 ♖xg6 27. ♖g1.

  DiceToThat: Why not 31 ...Nf4? It protects the g-pawn, breaks up the attack on the other knight by getting in the way of the bishop, plus gets himself away from the pawn attack.

Black is then up a piece and I'm not sure how white continues.
