This is a Qh4 Scotch marred by many inaccuracies and topped off by horrendous blunders. You have now lost 4-5 with this line.

  • 1. e4 e5 2. Ng1f3 Nb8c6 3. d4 exd4 4. Nf3xd4 Qd8h4
    ?! Even Lev Gutman can't redeem this move.
    • 5. Nd4b5 Bf8b4 6. c3
      There are more aggressive tries.
      • 6... Bb4a5 7. Qd1e2 d6 8. g3 Qh4g4
        Black got let off the hook.
        • 9. Qe2xg4 Bc8xg4 10. Bf1g2 Ng8e7 11. Bc1e3 a6 12. Nb5d4 Nc6e5 13. O-O O-O
          c5 and Nc4 were both tries that black did not consider.
          • 14. Nb1d2 Ba5b6 15. Nd4c2 Bb6xe3 16. Nc2xe3 Bg4e6 17. f4 Ne5g4 18. Ne3xg4 Be6xg4 19. Ra1e1 Bg4d7 20. c4 Ra8b8 21. e5 dxe5 22. Re1xe5 Ne7c6

            • 23. Bg2xc6 Bd7xc6 24. Rf1e1 f6
              Maybe better was Rfd8, attacking the knight, where the e8 square is still defended twice.
              • 25. Re5e7 Rf8f7 26. Nd2b3 Kg8f8 27. Re7xf7 Kf8xf7 28. Nb3c5 Rb8d8 29. Re1e2 a5 30. Kg1f2 g6
                ! For tactical reasons where the white knight will end up on e8 in some variations.
                • 31. Nc5e6 Rd8d7 32. b3 h5 33. h3 b6
                  ?! This is a minor inaccuracy. Rd3 is tactically justified. White is not winning the c7 pawn without giving up the g-pawn. Somehow you missed that the king moving to e1 abandons the pawn.
                  • 34. Re2e3 Rd7d2 35. Kf2e1 Rd2xa2
                    ?? Blunders the bishop. You were aware of that square before!
                    • 36. Ne6xc7
                      ? Missed the win.
