@peterpeng: great attack with a little help from your opponent. The correct answer to 3. Nxe5 is Qe7, not fxe5.
I don't think 8. Qg3 is best. Black might squeeze out a draw after...
Maybe White can still win this by force or White has better. I looked at it with Houdini but not for very long.
Instead the famous attack everyone knows since Damiano continues with h4, ie
Mate falls from a clear blue sky! In this game I only realised it was mate when chess.com informed me thereof. Goodness gracious me! Note (which I did not!) in retrospect how the second piece sac decoys the black bishop from its blockade of the crucial 7th rank.
Close but no cigar! Was there a win for white in this ??
One of my first d4 games, definitely motivation to keep playing d4. Not really any need to annotate it. I completely missed Nxf3+ so yeah Rfd1 was a bad move.
I capped this uninspiring game with a nice combination to deliver the checkmate on my 25th move and qualify for posting in this distinguished thread.
