Superb video and must have been massive fun to play. Thanks for the shout-out at the beginning. :-D

Most of the moves including Nxd4 came to me very intuitively. I love this anti-KG line as it really is a souped up version of those tricksy Skandinavian gambits i played for years, like this one: 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Nf6 3.d4 Nxd5 4.c4 Nb4 5.Qa4+? N8c6 6.d5 b5!! 7.cxb5 Bf5 (or 7...Nd4!?) 8.Na3 Qxd5 (etc.)

Usually "King in the Center" means king on e1 but here it came out to like e5. Hilarious. Above all you get points for courage-- not letting the master bluff you into some passive defense.
