    ...I now have a lost game."

    Is a famous note by Tarrasch who upon following the recommended
    opening theory discovered he was in awful position and was lost..

    It happened to me but I was lucky.

    apsol - greenpawn, RHP, June 2017.

    Here, from a Marshall Gambit, as Black I had just played 15...Re8.


    There is game I know that went 16.Bxf7+ Kxf7 17.Qf3+ Kg6! and Black won.

    But if White had played 16.Qf3


    A move I noticed the moment I clicked 'send' I'm lost. I think I would resigned.

    White is threatening mate with Qxf7+ and Qxe8. 16...Be6 17.Bxe6 Qxg4 1-0.

    Instead I won the game. it finished.
