    This is the other game I had v S.G. in his 40+ simul.
    This one went more according to plan even though I cock up the attack
    by refusing to pseudo-sac my c1 Bishop. Instead I pseudo sac two Knights.

    Hi Ragwort.

    Here


    11.Bf4 Qxf4 (I never even looked at 11...Qc8) 12.Rxb7 looked good, very good.

    But 11.Nd5 was more forcing and as I said in the notes I did not even see
    S.G. giving me back the Knight right away. 11.Nd5 exd5 12.exd5 Nd8 gives
    White all kinds of attractive play which just lured me in.
    I had good fun looking at and playing about with these lines. (waste of time but good fun.)

    So when we got to here.


    I suddenly saw after Nxd4 he has Rd8.
    I can Queen check and get out of the pin but have I got anything after that.
    I took the pawn and hoped S.G. would play Ne7. It was my last trick.

    Doesn't Rd8 lose to Ne6

    Hi guys.

    I did not look at anything after Nxd4 and just waited to see what S.G.
    played and gave a wee hoot of joy when I saw Ne7.
    If Rd8 I no doubt think it I would have gone for a similiar line that happened
    in the game.
