Nf3 d5 2. d4 Nf6 3. c4 c6 4. Nc3 dxc4 5. e4 b5 6. e5 {The Geller Gambit. Makes for a chaotic position, but White needs to ensure he gets his pawn back.} Nd5 7. a4 b4 8.

Ng5 h6 12. Ne4 e6 13. Qf3 Be7 14. Bb2 {The first and last time this Bishop moves. This placement means White is practially down a piece.

Qh5 f6 {A blunder -- I was being too greedy with the pawns. White can sac here and equalize the game at least, and Black's Queen and Bishop are too far away to help.} 28. Bh3 (28. Nxf6 Bxf6 29. Rxf6 gxf6 30. Qg6+) Ne5 {A happy move which improves King safety, gives Black's Queen space, and sets sights on the excellent d3 square.} 29. Rf1 Bb7 30.
