    Queen sac, Casey style

    Another bit of tawdry 5-minute bamboozlement on ICC, with a queen sac ending in a nice mate with three minor pieces...

    White: Another Hapless Online Queen Sac Victim Black: Kevin Casey

    King's Gambit

    1.e4 e5
    2.f4 Nc6
    3.Nf3 f5
    4.Bb5 fxe4
    5.Bxc6 dxc6
    6.Nxe5 Nf6
    7.0-0 Bc5+
    8.Kh1 0-0
    9.c3 a5
    10.d4 exd3
    11.Nd2 Bf5
    12.b4 Bb6
    13.Qb3+ Kh8
    14. Nf7+ Rxf7
    15.Qxf7 Qd6
    16.Bb2 Rf8
    17.Qb3 Ng4
    18.bxa5 Be3
    19.Nc4 Sucked in like a done dinner. The knight needs to be on f3.
    20.h3 Qxh3+!! 0-1

    21. gxh3 Be4+, and mate next move.

    Not the most exact play by either player, but mildly entertaining for a blitz game.

    An attractive minor piece mate.
    “The destructive capacity of the individual, however vicious, is small; of the state, however well-intentioned, almost limitless. Expand the state and that destructive capacity necessarily expands, too, pari passu.”—Paul Johnson, Modern Times, 1983.
