  fredthebear: 0-1!? It would ruin my week to lose to the Brooklyn Variation. Black did not castle, and he played f6?! Holy Bologna, what is the chess world coming too? (I'm trying to tell myself it had some resemblance to a French, Exchange.)

I would have played 26.QxBg4 to avoid doubled pawns, but the engine does not seem to care either way the re-capture is made. The game is even at that point. Black comes up w/a nice deflection sacrifice and royal N+ fork on the open h-file.

It's the only 2...Ng8 that Vitaliy Bernadskiy has played in this database. Should he quit while he's ahead?
