Model Games with ChessMood Openings

Hello ChessMood Family! 
Now I'm adding model games in each section of our course, so you have a better understanding of the positions. Some of them, I'll also add in the book, that I'm writing now (later about that.) 

Why did I write this post? :) 
If you played nice and instructive games with our ChessMood openings - please post here. 
I would be happy to add them as well. 

P.S 
The first course, where I'm going to add model games, gonna be the Scotch game. If you want to make a research in your games, start from the Scotch :)

Good game! Create a big imbalance King's Position with 0-0-0 vs 0-0. Launch direct attack to black king's side, It's more stronger attack for white because h6 black pawn... It's like similar theme with English Attack in Sicilian Najdorf, but with c-black pawn. Similar theme to Pirc Opening, there is white attack like this.

Thank you.

So I found a few games, which I will probably share with you and comment.
First game was played in Scotch Classical Variation with surprisingly move from opponent on move 6 so I think that would be even more instructive.
I mean 4.Nxd4 Bc5 5.Nb3 Bb6 6.Nc3 Qf6?!
That move wasn't covered in course so I was a bit confused for a moment. But for me that was a little innacuracy because queen on f6 can be easily attacked by for instance Nd5 or just pushing pawns.
So I did useful Qe2 move and I obviously defend pawn because of threat Qxf2#.
Further that was normally development, opposite castling. So I decided to go on immediately f4,h3,g4 against Nge7 setup how is covered in course.
After my 12.h3 he played tricky Qh4 probably with plan to pushing f5 some day with a nice tactic after moving my bishop from e3 somewhere and playing g4. However I decided to go for this. So I played I think nice positional move 13.Bxb6 making c7 pawn weak and having nice square on b5 for my knight to attack it. The only drawback of it is that the rook on a8 become playing but I think everything was in right time.
So after 13. Bxb6 axb6 as I mentioned earlier I played this agressive move 14.g4 and I have seen that tactic 14.g4 f5 15.exf5 or gxf5 no matter Nxf5! and after capturing the knight Bxb3! with attack on queen and a little bad pawn structure. But that also should be fine for me.
However I have seen very nice and crazy queen sacrifice which even engine can't saw initially :D
14.g4 f5 15.Nb5 (with threat of taking c7) Rac8 16.exf5 Nxf5 17.Qxe6!! Wxe6 18.Bc4 Nfe7 19.Bxe6 Kf8 20.Bxc8 Nxc8 21.Nxc7
And at this point I have strong compensation: two rooks and pawn against the queen and also opponent has three weak pawns on b7,b6,d6
After 21.Nxc7 Qg3 22.f5 he just resigned.

Conclusion:
1. I think that game can be very instructive with unusual idea of taking bishop on b6 and unlucky opening the rook on a8 but getting posibility to attack the c7 pawn.
2. Playing against Qf6 in Bc5 setup(Classical variation) .
3. Amazing queen sacrifice :D

Super! Jan, I just recorded the game, and we'll add in the "Model games" section. 
By the way, instead of Kb1 move, I offer to play h3, with f4 and g4 next, skipping the Kb1 move. 
You'll see it in the addition section of the Scotch game, where I cover the Qf6 move as well.

P.S
Jan, are you a PRO Member?! I couldn't find you :)

By the way, it reminds me of Ivanchuk's Qe6 sacrifice! :)

Yeah, that should be better to making attack faster.
Unfortunately I am not PRO Member yet, so that's why you couldn't find me ;D
I am considering that and probably I will become soon.
So for this moment I doesn't have posibility to watch additions sections :(
But I would really like to watch this game with your commentating ;D
I watched and did notes about scotch game course and few others when they were for free.

Oh so nice sacrifice! That's really crazier than mine haha. I didn't see that game. Thanks!! :D

Besides, as a few games can I add the game notation itself without a link, for instance, to chess.com?? Because I have a few games written in my notebook or computer notebook, without a reference and I don't remember where I played them. If not, that's ok I will try to find other games.

Typical and ilustrative game against 4. ... Qf6.
My opponent decided to go long castle 8. ... O-O-O which is covered in the course how to play against it.
So first eleven moves I was playing almost immediately.
Later is just logical attack, pushing pawns and bringing more pieces to the queenside. Move 16. b6 breakthrough.
And after 21. Bf3 Qe7 I am winning much material or getting his queen like on move 26. Rb7.
And he just resigned.

Thank you so much!! :D
I've watched this game just over 6 times ;D
Yeah, that tactic with playing Bg4 when I would play f4 without h3 is very problematic and hard to spot without knowing it.
He could also play it after my move 11. f4 Bg4
I thoutght that would be very interesting because after Qxg4 and Bxe3 that move isn't with check and probably that is much better version than f4 Bg4 without Kb1. I can make my attack a little faster and yeah this is opposite bishops middlegame but as you say, it's still a long way to the ending ;)
And maybe my light-square bishop will be very useful on c4, taking over additional protection against breakthrough in the center by d5 and shooting on f7 which makes harder to play f5  for opponent. Anyway that would be interesting, but yeah I could play h3 firstly :)

By the way you pronounce my surname a little wrong, but no matter ;D
If you are curious how to pronounce it, enter my surname in a translator, e.g. "Google translator", set it to Polish language and check how the translator pronounces it :D

And sorry for not responding for such a long time but I had a some issues in my live and I just didn't have much time.

What happens if you play passive d6, leave your king in the centre and play an unprepared queenside attack in the scotch. *Spoiler* it doesn't last very long.
