Need I remind you, this is the BDG:Zilbermints Gambit in Euwe Defense? I would like to see some games you guys played with it!

Here are two of my games. And no, my opponents had not the benefit of computer analyses to help them. It was them against my tactical genius, the depths and thickets of the Zilbermints Gambit in the Euwe Defence... Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha......

1 d4 d5 2 e4 de4 3 Nc3 Nf6 4 f3 ef3 5 Nxf3 e6 6 Bg5 Be7 7 Bd3 Nc6 8 00 Nxd4 9 Kh1 h6 10 Bf4 Nc6 11 Qe1 Nd5? 12 Nxd5 ed5 13 Qg3! Kf8 14 Bxc7 Qe8 15 Rae1 Be6?? 16 Rxe6! fxe6 17 Nd4+

Here 17 Bg6! was best, but I did not see it. Anyhow, there is more than one way to win in this position.

17...Bf6 18 Bd6+ Kg8 19 Nxc6 Qxc6 20 Rxf6 Rd8

21 Be5

Here 21 Rf7!! wins outright, but I only saw 21 Be5.

21...Rd7 22 Bf5! ef5 23 Rxc6 bc6 24 h4 Kh7 25 h5 Rf8 26 Qg6+ Kg8 27 Qxc6 Rff7 28 c3 Rfe7 29 Bd6

Winning this game netted me first place in the tournament, with 4.5/5 points.
