Tarantula's Venom

This game involves a daring Rook sacrifice and a combination of moves that leads to mate.

1. d4, d5
2. Bf4, c5
3. Bxb8, Rxb8
4. dxc5, e6
5. Qd4, Qc7
6. b4, b6
7. cxb6, Rxb6
8. c3, Rxb4 !!

So sudden.  White was not even able to catch his breadth.

9. cxb4, Qc1+
10.  Qd1, Bxb4+
11. Nd2, Bxd2 mate

Fantastic!   A gem of a game.
