Trying new things can reap rewards!
1. e4 c5 2. Ng1f3 Nb8c6 3. d4
I used to not like this for White, purely as it gives up a centre pawn, but I've learned how many rules of thumb can be broken on many occasions.
3... cxd4 4. Nf3xd4 e5 5. Nd4b5
Labourdonnais-Loewenthal variation, I had never really played this as White
Perhaps playable, but d6 is better
6. Bc1g5 Bf8e7
Breaks the pin
But Black must take with the g7 pawn, damaging the kingside structure, because if Bishop takes...
7... Be7xf6 8. Nb5d6
Black loses the ability to castle and has difficulties in defending light squares... this is why d6 earlier was better.
8... Ke8f8 9. Bf1c4 Qd8e7 10. Nd6xf7 Rh8g8 11. c3
Quiet move, but this now allows Qd5, as there is no Nb4 or Nd4
11... d6 12. Qd1d5 Bc8d7 13. Nf7xd6
Threatening mate in one, Rh8 is needed
