Through the centre then left at the h file

 Toby Brookfield is quite a dangerous player when he gets an attack going, something I discovered when I played him at the 2010 Olympiad. In the most recent Olympiad, he opens with the Centre Game, and when his opponents fails to take in e4 on move 8, is able to directly target the king. 

Once Brookfield plays h6 he is completely winning, although it took a few more moves before his opponent also realised.
