2012 KCCC Gets Trappy in Round 3

White to play and win.
I have annotated Goeller - Chen from the third round of the Kenilworth Chess Club Championship.  It featured the Three Knights Defense with 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nc3 Bb4, which I comment on extensively in my notes.  Fortunately for me, Chen walked into a tactical shot that won a piece in the opening (see diagram above) and made my task much easier than I had expected.  I will probably face Arthur Macaspac next week, which should be an interesting game.
