Games! We got games!

Along with the game Bill Wall sent (see "Strike First!") recently came the (somewhat abridged) note
Oh, I have all my games up to a few weeks ago on my chess page at which may have more Jerome Gambits in it that you may not have seen... It is under the collections column called Bill Wall 1969-2015... Something like 43,800 games so far.
Chess players who enjoy unorthodox chess openings, take note!

In addition, here is a short win by Bill, from about 60 new-to-me games I found in his collection.

Wall, Bill - Kaefer, 2013

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Nc3 Bc5 5.Bxf7+

The Italian Four Knights Jerome Gambit.

5...Kxf7 6.Qe2 

An favorite line of Bill's, We took a look at this in "Cat-and-Mouse", "Waiting... Pouncing!",  "Something Had to Happen" and "The What?".

6...d6 7.O-O Rf8 8.Qc4+ Be6 

The kind of quick reaction that occurs in blitz, and gets punished, appropriately.


Discussed in "Recurring Theme". No doubt played in a nano-second by Bill.


Or 9...Ke7 10.Qxe6 checkmate, hinders - Devotion, FICS, 2001. hinders played over 30 6.Qe2 games on FICS in 2000 - 2002.


Thinking back upon the post "Wrong Piece - Oh, Never Mind!"  I had to chuckle at the other piece capture, 10.Qxe6. Black should respond with ...Nd4, but, instead played 10...Kxg5 in linders - Lader, FICS, 2000, when the following unfolded 11.d4+ (instead, he had 11.Qf5+ Kh6 12.d4+ g5 13.Qxg5#) 11...Kg6 12.dxc5 Nd4 13. Qh3 dxc5 14. Qg3+ Kf7 15. Qxe5 Re8 16.Nb5? b6? 17.Qg3? Ne2+ White resigned 


Black throws in the towel (and a few pieces). He could have continued to fight, as in an earlier game: 10...Qe7 11.d3 Rfe8 12.Ng5 h6 13.Nf3 Kh7 14.Nh4 Qe6 15.Qb5 Bb6 16.Na4 Nd4 17.Qb4 Nxc2 18.Qd2 Nxa1 19.Qe2 Bd4 20.Qf3 Qg4 21.Qd1 Qxh4 22.g3 Qh3 23.Qf3 Nc2 24.Bd2 Bb6 25.Nc3 Nd4 26.Qd1 Ng4 27.Qxg4 Qxg4 28.h3 Qxh3 29.Nd5 Ne2 checkmate, hinders - Matheusaum, FICS, 2001.

11.Rxf2 Nxe4 12.Nxf8+ Qxf8 13.Qxe4+ Black resigned
