Frederiksborg Sacrifice

White sacrifices his Queen to win the game.

1. e4, e5
2. Nf3, Nc6
3. Bc4, d6
4. 0-0, Ne7
5. Ng5, f6?

This move breaks open Black's kingside.  Best defense is 5....d5.

6. Bf7+, Kd7
7. Qg4+ ....

If 7. Ne6, White wins the Black Queen, but White goes after the most important piece.

7. .... f5
8. exf5, h5

Black is compelled to drive the Queen away, but White is undeterred.

9. f6+, hxg4
10. Be6+, Ke8
11. f7 mate
