    Very good! I think there's a famous name for that queen sac smothered knight mate pattern.

    It's called Philidor's Legacy, but as you can see, it's a con. http://www.redhotpawn.com/blog/blogread.php?blogpostid=63

    On a side note, I like the game, although I am disappointed that the Morra player didn't win. I like the Morra.

    Good show! White played very passively. Surprised he plays gambits.

    For example, I would strongly consider 6.Qg4!? instead of the meek 6.Be2?

    Well Done.
    I'd have given you the satisfaction of the mate
    (... but that's another thread!)

    Thanks guys,
    and I won't lose sleep over not being given the satisfaction
    (maybe loss of sanity, but that is also another thread!)
