    f6 you'd probably run into some trouble after Nxe5 too if you have never seen it before. d6 or Nf6 are normal moves.

    Make that 10. ... Bxd2+, and 11. ... Qxd5 ;)

    As Scottrf said, you should be careful when moving the f pawn early like that. After 3...f6, 4. Qh5+ would be devastating.

    5.exd5 Qxd5 6.Nc3, blowing away your Q and developing the N.

    gimewuchugot as Maartensmith said, Qxd5 fails to Bxb4, you need Bxd2 first.

    As early as move 14 you have g5! Bg3 f4.

    Qxd5 on what move? I did put a lot of comments in my diagram...

    Aha, I missed the hanging Bb4 :P, but Bxd2 is still winning, right?

    Not winning, just regaining the piece.

    Ah, it's too early in the morning to do this :P

    EDIT: 'this' refers to analyzing a low-level game filled with blunders

    I made the same mistake, Bxd2 isn't winning but it's holding on (levelling up the piece count).

    Scott, you have no excuse, it's afternoon here in Europe :p

     

    And yeah, 4. Qh5+ is 1-0 pretty much. 4. ... g6 (4. ... Kf8 5. Qf7#) 5. Nxg6 and the Rh8 is at least lost (and white is threatening mate in 2)

    So you should indeed be careful with that f-pawn in the opening :p

    Isn't being a useless player excuse enough?

    In that case I'd also have to accept being English as an excuse. Oh well.

    How did the Dutch do at the Euros?

    They've outgrown Euro, they only do World Championships seriously now. :)
