Giuoco Fortissimo

The following game reminds of a "tale that took less time than it takes to tell". It starts quietly, but does not stay that way.

Philidor 1792 - guest581
3 0 blitz,, 2014

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.c3 Nf6

Looking like a regular Giuoco Piano. But, wait...

5.Bxf7+ Kxf7 6.Ng5+ Kg6

The King hunts the Knight, but soon becomes the hunted.

7.h4 h6 8.h5+ Kxg5 9.d4 checkmate.
