A Recent Blitz Game O' Mine

I saved this, and I felt like getting it off my desktop, so here I am putting up the text of the game with annotations. This is a blitz game (3 minutes per side), online, so it's not exactly the spitting image of theoretical chess play. But it was fun. Here it is. I'm White.

[Event "GameKnot Blitz"]
[Site ""]
[Date "2011.02.25"]
[Round "-"]
[White "tree_of_thorns"]
[Black "guyclint"]
[Result "1-0"]

1. e4 e5
2. c3 Nf6
3. d4 Nxe4
4. Bd3 d5
5. Nf3 Bg4
6. h3 Bh5
7. g4

(get out of here, jackass bishop...)

7... Nxf2!

(what the... !)

8. Kxf2 e4
9. gxh5

(Irving Chernev always said, when your enemy has two options to take one of your pieces, give him a third! I'm going for the slightly less aggressive/insane "let him decide". Plus, if I make him take, the e-file will be clear for my rook/queen.)

9... Be7 (which he saw coming).
10. Rg1 exf3
11. Qxf3
(Has there ever been a more perfect opportunity for a kingside attack?! I was thinking "Come on, castle into it, c'mon you magnificent bastard, castle...")

11... Bh4+
12. Kf1 O-O


13. Bh6 Bf6
14. Bxg7! Bxg7
15. h6

("Yo ass is DOOMED")

15... Re8?
16. Rxg7+ Kf8
17. Qxf7# 1-0

The ignominious end.
