5…e6 6.Ngf3 Nf6 7.0–0 c5 Black is threatening to trap the bishop with 8…c5–c4.

8.c3 Be7 9.Ne5 0–0 10.Qf3 a6 11.g4 Bd6 12.g5 Bxe5 13.fxe5 Ne8 14.Bxh7+!! A very typical sacrifice for this setup.

14…Kxh7 15.Qh5+

The silicon friends suggest the following manoeuvre 15.Qh3+ Kg8 16.Rf4 in order to put the rook in front of the queen. However, the attacking approach of White is more common.

15…Kg8 16.Rf3 g6 17.Qh6 Bc8?? After this blunder Black’s position is falling apart.

[17…Ng7 was the last hope, although White’s attack goes on: 18.Rh3 Nh5
