temptation: marshmellows, bishops

So Mig facebooked this video:

and it immediately brought to mind a position Azeez got on Saturday:

Azeez is white. His opponent played 1...Bf3. He's a good calculator and normally a very sensible player, but I guess it's like marshmellows.

2. gxf3 exf3
3. Qd1 Qxh3
4. Qxd8+ Bf8
5. Qg5 ...

and ... everything's ok?!?


5... Bd6! and there's no stopping ...Bh2-g3, Qg2#.

poor Azeez
