Blair Attack

The game features an exemplary attack on f7,

1. e4, e5
2. Nf3, Nc6
3. Bc4, Nf6
4. d4, exd4
5. Nxd4, Nxe4
6. Bxf7+ ....

The commencement of Blair Attack.

6. .... Kxf7
7. Qh5+, g6

The most logical move.  If 7....Kg8 then 8. Qd5 mate.  If 7.... Ke7 then 8. Nf5+ with a blistering attack.

8. Qd5+, Kg7
9. Nxc6 ....

White simplifies the position, taking advantage of the pin on Black Queen.  Now, if 9....bxc6, then 10. Qxe4.

9. .... Nf6

Black tries to save his remaining Knight, hoping for an exchange of Queens as in: 10. Nxd8 Nxd5.

10. Bh6+, Kxh6
11. Qd2+

Black resigns.  His Queen is lost.
