Super GM Luke McShane understimated black's setup.} 1. e4 e5 2. f4 {The King's Gambit.} exf4 3. Nf3 Nf6 {The first game, black played 3...h6.} 4. e5 ({If} 4. Nc3 d5 5. exd5 Nxd5 6. Bc4 Qe7+ 7. Qe2 Nxc3 8. dxc3 Qxe2+ 9. Bxe2 Bd6) 4... Nh5 { Protects the f4 pawn...} 5. d4 d6 {Standard play to hit white's center pawn.} 6. Bc4 Nc6 {Continues pressure on the e5 pawn...same strategy by GM Grischuk in our first featured game.} 7. d5 Nxe5 8. Nxe5 {Playing blitz sometimes you rely on your gut feeling. Taking the knight at e5 is a miscalculation.} Qh4+ 9. Kf1 {White king is vulnerable. I am not judging GM McShane's bad game here, it happens always on speed chess to make a mistake at an early stage of the game.} ({If} 9. g3 fxg3 10. Bb5+ ({If} 10. Nf3 g2+ 11. Kd2 gxh1=Q 12. Nxh4 Qxh2+ 13. Qe2+ Qxe2+ 14. Bxe2) 10... Ke7) 9... dxe5 {Black is two pawns up and already exploited white's kingside.} 10. Bb5+ Kd8 {Best place for the black king. Underestimating either the position or the player will backfire due to the extent of element of surprise exactly what happens in this game.} 11. Qe1 { Now, white blundered...missed the check at c5 if white king goes to g1.} Ng3+ { Black Resigned: The difference of rating does not matter on speed games. But most of all, we learned something about this game. Fantastic opening set-up by GM Aleksander Indjic..it showed his opening preparation 4...Nh5 how to undermine white's kingside. To all subscribers, viewers globally...THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT. Have a Joyful and Safety Holiday this festive season. ..GOD BLESS YOU....} 0-1
