    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.
    ...Qh6
    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.

    Cheers,

    Kevin Casey

    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    An attractive minor piece mate.

Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell
