In this video, I play a rapid chess game against chess960lab (2341) on lichess.org. My opponent refused to enter my Stafford Gambit and we got a symmetrical and seemingly “dry” Italian Opening. However, I decided to play some aggressive ideas. The position got sharp very quickly. In the middlegame, I employed the highly powerful Ke7!! — a slightly delayed and very much improved Bongcloud (an opening usually classified by Ke2 or Ke7). Things proceeded to get even more fun… Analyze the game: https://lichess.org/8GyhV0EqCTXl
About a half hour after the game, I got a Twitch raid from FM Gauri — https://www.twitch.tv/grandmastergauri and I was reminded of his immortal Bongcloud game (from over 5 years ago). I went on to his youtube video in which he recapped the incredible game: https://youtu.be/–weZBsLTrU
