The party begins with 12 ... Ng4. Black surrenders his central pawns and the 'gamble sac' 15 ... Nxf2 leaves both knights to be taken. (to be quite honest I only noticed after playing 15 ... Nxf2 that the other knight was also 'en pris' !) White chooses the d4 knight only to find the other offered again - this time on h3. After 17 gxh3 Qg3+ 18. Kh1, it should have been 'night, night' after 18. ... Bxe4+!! rather than 18 ... Bh3 but white did not find the best defence 20. Qg1! and resigned before being check mated.
Have fun analysing 16. Rxf2 instead of 16. Qxd4. I am not sure what the outcome would have been but had intended 16 ... Bxh3!?
