    Another queen sac bamboozle-ectomy performed without anaesthesia

    A 2181 victim on ICC was forced to suffer through this tawdry indignity today... (Black: Kevin Casey)

    1. b3 e5
    2. Bb2 d6
    3. e3 Nd7
    4. Ne2 Ngf6
    5. f4 Be7
    6. Ng3 exf4
    7. exf4 Nf8
    8. Be2 Ng6
    9. 0-0 0-0
    10. Bd3 d5
    11. Bxg6 hxg6
    12. f5 gxf5
    13. Nxf5 Bxf5
    14. Rxf5 Qd6
    15. Be5 Qe6
    I've played the opening in less than stalwart fashion and my opponent has the advantage here.
    16. Qf1 c6
    17. Re1 Ng4!?
    Giving White the choice of Bc7 or Bxg7, winning material.
    18. Bxg7 Kxg7
    19. Rxe6 fxe6
    Now all of a sudden, it's White who needs to be careful, because there's a bishop check coming at c5.
    20. Rf3 Bc5+
    21. Kh1 Nf2+
    22.Kg1
    White could give up the exchange here, but he's hoping that Black will be satisfied with a draw. However, I actually saw this position at move 17 when I played ...Ng4.
    ... Ne4+
    23. Kh1 Ng3+!
    That's the one.
    0-1.

    Cheers,
    Kevin Casey

    You're right - sorry. Move 17 should be 17. Nc3, Rad8, then Move 18 is 18.Re1 Ng4!? etc. I missed out a move by each player... doh!

    Cheers,
    Kevin

    Wow, Kevin. I completely missed that. And so did my opponent, apparently, who resigned! That's speed chess for you. . My dubious queen sac turned out to be even more dubious than I thought ....
