    No one. It was only a blunder.

    In the second game 6...Bxf2+ (instead of 6...Kxf7) is very good.

    7. Kxf2 0-0!! winning.

    7. Kf1 Ne2+ winning.

    I always look out for this kind of idea. Castling with a Knight on f7.
    Ever since I first saw this game in Du Mont's 200 Miniatures.



    You will get loads of tactical ideas from playing over short games.
