Italian Game, Guioco Pianissimo Normal Variation

London, 1862

1. e4, e5
2. Nf3, Nc6
3. Bc4, Nf6
4. d3, Bc5
5. 0-0, d6
6. Bg5, h6
7. Bh4, g5
8. Bg3, h5!!
9. Nxg5? ....

White should have moved h4, neutralizing Black's attack.

9. .... h4!
10. Nxf7 ....

10. .... hxg3!!

Black continues the attack sacrificing the Queen in the process.

11. Nxd8, Bg4!

Black takes advantage of the pin on f2.

12. Qd2, Nd4!!
13. Nc3 ....

White thought that the Knight is going to e2, that is why he did not move hxg3, because of what he thought was the threat Ne2+ winning his Queen.  But Black has the most perfect idea in mind.

13. .... Nf3+
14. gxf3 ....

Black cannot move his King to h1 because of Rxh2 mate.

14. .... Bxf3!!

Now White's doom is sealed.  Black threatens gxh2 mate.

15. hxg3 Rh1 mate.

A relentless attack by Black enhanced even more by a beautiful Queen sacrifice.
