View Full Version : my opening trap

So, I felt like uploading my nice little game here. It's an internet game, with a cute little trap in the king's gambit - I don't usually play that opening, but I hadn't beat the guy in a while so I thought I'd play something with some good attacking chances.

1. e4 e5 2. f4 exf4 3. Nf3 g5 4. h4 g4 5. Ne5 Qe7 {King's gambit,
Kieseritsky gambit, Rosenthal defence. This move was new to me and looked
pretty good.} 6. d4 f5? {this move, however, didn't at all, I was much more
worried by d6} 7. Bc4 d6 8. Bf7+!? {Nf7 of course wins the exchange, but I
spotted a cute little trap that the check helps with.} Kd8 9. Bxf4 dxe5??
10. Bg5! {Nf6 is no defence because of dxe+. Looks like a dumb trap to fall
into, and it is, but the bishop moving like that is harder to see coming
than you might think.} Bg7 11. dxe5+ Bd7 12. Bxe7+ Kxe7 13. Qd5 Nc6 14. e6
Bxb2 15. Qxd7+? {Qc5+ would have been crushing} Kf6 16. Rf1 Nge7 17. Qxc7
Rab8 18. Nd2 Bxa1 19. Nc4 Rhc8 20. Qf4 Bc3+ 21. Kf2 Kg7 22. Qg5+ Kf8 23.
exf5 Nd8 24. Nd6 Rc5 25. Qxg4 Rd5 26. Rd1 Rxd1 27. Qxd1 Nxf7 28. Nxf7 Nxf5
29. Qf3 Bd4+ 30. Ke1 Nxh4 31. Qg3 Re8 32. Qd6+ Re7 33. Qxd4 Rxe6+ 34. Ne5?
{I didn't see the possibility of Ng6 and luckily neither did he, I still
should have won, but it would have taken much much longer. The rest is
boring mopping up.} Nxg2+ 35. Kf2 Nh4 36. Qxh4 Kg7 37. Qg5+ Kf8 38. Kf3 Ke8
39. Qg7 Re7 40. Qg8# 1-0
