The Exchange Sacrifice
Compiled by Benzol
--*--

This is a collection of games mainly by Botvinnik, Petrosian and Gligoric which involve the exchange sacrifice. The sacifices are made to upset the normal values and flow of events that transpire over the board. This collection was inspired by Ray Keene & Ewen Green.
