1... e5 2. Ng1f3 Nb8c6 3. Bf1c4
C50 Italian Game.
3... h6 4. d4 exd4 5. Nf3xd4 Nc6e5
. . . Nf6 was better, to develop another piece.
6. Bc4b3 Ng8f6 7. O-O c6
. . . Nxe4 is too risky, in view of 8. Re1.
8. Rf1e1 Bf8c5 9. c3 d6 10. Nb1d2 O-O 11. h3 g5
This looks premature to me, but we'll see whether Black can make an attack of it.
Had I foreseen the coming storm, I would have played Nf1 instead.
In our previous game, Hansen was too timid and was hamstrung by an advanced pawn in his flank. Now he tries the same against me.
White takes the bait.
13... gxh3 14. Bh6xf8
An old chess adage says, accept the first two sacrifices, but refuse the third.
14... Nf6g4 15. g3 Qd8f6
Black plays audaciously and conjures up mate threats already.
