This game features the Quaade Gambit and one reader on reddit.com wrote: “That last game is an absolute beauty”
  

   This King’s Gambit game has just about every beautiful tactical motif that you can think of.

  • Miniature - only 13 moves
  • Discovered check on move 7 for black
  • White sacrifices his rook on move 8
  • Black sacrifices his queen on move 8
  • Pawn Promotion – black queens a pawn on move 8 to get back his queen
  • Quiet move 9. Qh5
  • Double Discovered Check! with 11. Nd6+
  • Queen sacrifice with 12. Qe8+
  • Smothered mate, down a rook and a queen for a pawn, with 13. Nf7#
