C32 King's Gambit Falkbeer Counter-Gambit

1.e4 e5 2.f4 d5 3.exd5 e4 4.Bb5+ Bd7
[4...c6 5.dxc6 bxc6 6.Bc4 Nf6 was an option.]

5.Bxd7+ Qxd7?!
[>=5...Nxd7 6.Nc3 Ngf6 ]

6.Qe2N
[Predecessor (3): 6.Nc3 Nf6 7.d3 exd3 8.Qxd3 Stadler - Werbrouck : correspondence, ChessFriend.com 2004]

6...Nf6 7.Nc3 Na6
[>=7...Be7+/= shielding the K, preparing to castle short, and preventing White's next.]

8.Nf3 0-0-0 9.Ne5 Qe7??
Diagram

This loses. [9...Qe8[]+/= was required.]

10.Nc6! bxc6
[10...Qe8 , giving-up an Exchange, was a much better try..]

11.Qxa6+ Kb8?
This allows White to force mate. [>=11...Kd7 12.dxc6+ Ke8 13.Qxa7 although Black would be 3 Ps down and his K would be stuck in the center.]

12.dxc6 Qb4 13.Nb5 1-0
