Matovinsky Gambit Accepted[edit]

6. fxg6[edit]

Taking black's g-pawn, and threatening black's h-pawn. Black can now play:

  • 6...Nf6, a grave error - attempting to scare off white's queen, but in reality dooming black to mate in 2.
  • 6...Bg7, better but still lost for Black after 7. Qf5! Nf6 8. Bh6 Bxh6 9. gxh7 Bxh1 10. Qg6+ Kf8 11. Qxh6+ Kf7 12. Nh3
