    Sometimes,after I've blundered real bad,I like to look at a game such as this one



    Nice miniature!
    Now,Ghitescu was no slouch.
    Pre-ELO era but I found a Corus rating of him of 2384.

    Had a very similar situation in a game I am currently playing. I considered playing this line at move 12. But realising I couldn't play 14. Qe4xd5 without losing my queen, I played something else

    I'm pretty sure Qxd5 gives check, so you don't really have to worry about losing your queen.
