W:Abdul Hamid Majid vs. B: Larry Parr
Friendly Game

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. Nc3 Nf6 5. Bb3 O-O 6. Nxe5 Bxf2+?!

Objectively speaking this is a dubios move. However, without it this game will lost it "artistic value". Correct is 6... Nxe5 7. d4 Bd6 8. dxe5 Bxe5 7. Kxf2 Nxe5 8. Re1? Understandabaly White try to castle manually. The right continution is 8. d4 Nc6 (8... Neg4+ 9. Kg1 d5 10. h3 Nh6 11. Bxh6 gxh6) 9. e5 8... Nfg4+ 9. Kg1 Qh4 10. h3 Qf2+ 11. Kh1 Nf3 ?! beautifull move but dubious move. Best is 11...Qg3 12. hxg4 Nxg4 13. Qxg4 Qxg4 12. Rf1?? White would turn the table after 12. Re2! d6 (12...Qh4 13. gxf3 Qxh3+ 14. Kg1 Qxf3 15. Rg2) 13. gxf3 Qxf3+ 14. Kg1 Qxh3 15. d4) 13. gxf3 Qxf3+ 14. Kg1 Qg3+ 15.Rg2 12... Qg1+ !! The brilliant move 13. Rxg1 Nf2# 1-0
A nice checkmate by the two knights. If you checkmate your opponent like this, who care whether you make dubious moves !
