1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5 c5 5.a3 Bxc3+ 6.bxc3 Ne7 7.Qg4 0-0 8.Bd3 f5 9.exf6 Rxf6 10.Bg5 e5
My opponent's move 10...e5 took me by surprise. After extensive analysis I rejected 11.Bxh7+ as too unclear/risky.

11.Qh4 e4
After 11.Qh4 e4, however, 12.Be2 seems to give Black good play, e.g. with Qa5, so I sacrificed the Bishop after all.

12.Bxe4 Re6
I analyzed the move 12...Re6 but didn't really expect him to play it. Due to the pin on the Bishop, White has nothing better than a perpetual after 13.Qxh7+. A 'damp squib' of a game but a fascinating line for analysis. 1/2-1/2
