Qh4 Scotch with 5.Nxc6 ?!

  • 1. Nd4xc6
    ?! This isn't good! Yet I still lost ;)
    • 1... Qh4xe4 2. Bc1e3 dxc6
      This is fine. You can also take with the queen.
      • 3. Nb1c3
        Qe5 and Bb4 are good for black.
        • 3... Bf8b4 4. Qd1d2 Qe4e5
          ?! You'll need to do a better job of intuiting where to move the lady. You overlooked Qd5, which is safe due to a simple tactic. Qe7 is inferior, but better than your move.
          • 5. O-O-O Bc8g4
            ? Moves the rook where it wants to go. I think you missed the power of bxc in the variations.
            • 6. Rd1e1
              ? Bd4 wins right away.
              • 6... Bb4xc3 7. bxc3 Bg4e6 8. Be3d4
                ? Only Qd5 saves you. Black is worse but alive.
                • 8... Qe5a5
                  ? It doesn't matter at this point.
