Repetition Helps Those Who Pay Attention

Sometimes I find myself repeating myself here.

If I go back to last year's post "Cure Worse Than The Disease", for example, I can find a relevant comment on the opening in the following 2014 game

Discussed in this blog as early as 2008 in "Offside!" and "The Other Side" and as recently as this year in "Always Good to Remember".
If defenders don't pay attention, they always run the risk of meeting an attacker who does. softiger, meet vandi.

vandi - softiger

standard, FICS,2014

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Na5 

Deviating from the Giuoco Piano, 3...Bc5, which would allow the Jerome Gambit. White's response is the same, however, and everyone in the Jerome Gambit Gemeinde should play it just as quickly.

4.Bxf7+ Kxf7 5.Nxe5+ Ke8 

6.Qh5+ Ke7 7.Qf7+ Kd6 8.Qd5+ Ke7 9.d4 Nc6 10.Qf7+ Kd6 11.Nc4 checkmate
