I played this game a couple of years ago. I ended up losing pretty quickly, but I think I had good chances, at least, I would have, had I been a decent chess player. I played Black:

(Ruy Lopez)
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. 0-0 Bc5 6. c3 0-0 7. Re1 Ng4 8. d4 3xd4 9. cxd4 nxd4(!?) 10. Nxd4 Qh4 11. Be3 Qxh2+ 12. Kf1 Qh5?? 13. Nd2 f5 14. Bb3+ Kh8 15. eXf5 Bxd4 16. Bxd4 Rxf5 17 Qxg4 Black resigns.

I think if I'd kept pressing, and not withdrawn my queen, in about 15 moves, I end up clearing out (slightly) better...
I need to start playing again.
