  Kurakotsaba: Bravo, Anton! Magnifico.
Oct-19-19  Fanques Fair: Why not 11-... , Nh6 ? It seems strange, but the idea is to threaten Ng8 and to take the White knight on h4. White appears to have some trouble defending this knight, but itīs not so . But it' tricky . For example : 12-Be3 ? , Ng8 and the White knight has nowhere to go. It seems that 12-Bh1 is forced, to give the g2 square for the knight. Then follows : 12...; Ng8 , 13- Ng2 , Nc6! (not ...Bxh3? , 14-Qb3, Be6, 15-Qxb7 , Nbd7 , 16-Nxd5, Bxd5, 17 Qxd5 with great advantage ) , 14- Qb3 , Be6, 15- Qxb7, Na5, 16-Qb5+, Kf8, 17-Ne3, Rb8, 18- Qa4 ( not Qa6?? , Bc8, winnig the queen) , Bd7 , 19-Qc2 , with big pressure.

White has a significant advantage, but Black also has a possible plan to play Nf6 . Dynamic position.

Anyway, as it was, fantastic attack. Beuatiful.

  beatgiant: <Fanques Fair> The plan with 11...Nh6 followed by 12...Ng8 is so slow, White should think about how to sacrifice a piece.

I think the answer is 11...Nh6 <12. Qb3> Ng8 <13. Qxd5!> gxh4 14. Qe5 with huge complications, but White has two pawns and a big lead in development for the piece.

King says of this variation, with the black knight back on g8 again and the queen in the center, that white has overwhelming compensation for the piece.
