Shades of "Why did he play that move?": my opponent would have been well-served by asking himself that, after my 12th move. As a result, what could have been an interesting tangle got short-circuited.
perrypawnpusher - Makeyourmove,
blitz, FICS, 2013
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.Bxf7+
4...Kxf7 5.Nxe5+ Nxe5 6.Qh5+ Ng6 7.Qd5+ Ke8 8.Qxc5 d6 9.Qe3 Nf6
This is a standard position in the 6...Ng6 Jerome Gambit - this is the 45th time for me.
Black continues to develop and prepare for castling-by-hand - impressive, for a player who, at least according to The Database, has not played or faced a Jerome Gambit (at least on FICS).
10.0-0 Kf7 11.f4 Re8 12.f5
This position appeared as early as Vazquez,A - Carrington,W, Mexico, 2nd match (1), 1876 (1-0, 34).
This is my 10th game with it on the board, having won 6 and lost 3 to date. Twice my opponents made it easy for me - and now, today.
Why does White allow Black to take his e-pawn?
Zwischenzug. Intermediate move.
After equally incautious 13...Kxg6 White has 14.Rxf6+ Qxf6 15.Qxe4+ as in perrypawnpusher - mconst, blitz, FICS, 2011 (0-1, 18).
Black's best is 13...Kg8 and after 14.gxh7+ then 14...Kh8 (14...Kxh7 allows 15.Qd3) when White has an edge; he should focus on development, as Houdini suggested after the game, 15.Qf2 Rg4 16.d3 b6 17.Nd2 Bb7 18.Nf3.
14.Qxe4 Black resigned
perrypawnpusher - bnxr, blitz, FICS, 2011 (1-0, 29) continued another 15 moves, with the same result.
