1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.d4 exd4 5.Nd5 Nxe4 6.Bc4 Be7 7.Nxd4

It leads to a very violent and complicated game that has been deeply analyzed by theory

7...0-0 8.Nb5 Bc5 

[Or 8...Bb4+ 9.c3 Nxf2! 10.Qh5 Nxh1 11.cxb4 Nxb4? (11...Re8+! 12.Kf1 Re5 13.Qf3 Qh4 14.Bf4 Re4! 15.Bd3 Ne5 16.Bxe5 Rxe5 17.Nbxc7= ) 12.Bg5 Re8+ 13.Kf1 Re5 14.Re1 1-0 Kenworthy,G-Van der Sterren,P/Ramsgate op 1981] 

9.0-0 Nxf2! 10.Qh5! Ne5! 11.b4!?

[11.Nbxc7 leads to equality 11...d6! 12.Rxf2 Bg4 13.Qg5 Qxg5 14.Bxg5 Nxc4 15.Nxa8 Rxa8 16.b3 Bxf2+ 17.Kxf2 Ne5 18.Be7! Rc8 19.c4= ]

11...d6

[11...Nh3+? This is a mistake. 12.Kh1 Nf2+ 13.Rxf2 Bxf2 14.Bg5 g6 15.Qh6 Ng4 16.Bxd8 Nxh6 17.Bf6 Nf5 18.Nbxc7 Rb8 19.g4 1-0 Kersten - Voetter/Correspondence 1993]

12.bxc5 Bg4 13.Bg5

[A lot of ink has been used to analyze the consequences of 13.Qg5 Nf3+ 14.gxf3 Nh3+ 15.Kh1 Nxg5 with the conclusion that White can achieve a draw at his best. ]

13...Bxh5 14.Bxd8 Raxd8 15.cxd6 c6 16.Bb3 Nfg4

[16...cxd5 17.Rxf2 f6 18.Bxd5+ Bf7 it's simpler]
