|Dec-03-03|| ||patzer2: Torre, sitting pretty with three pawns for the exchange, springs a sequence of moves, beginning with 24...Nc5, to finish off Reti for a nice Black win in the English Opening.|
Notice how Torre's deflection move 27...Bd2! followed by the waiting move 28...Ba5 leave Reti's bishop trapped in the middle of the board, forcing the winning double attack that follows.

Congratulatins to Torre Repetto on his tumb, what a nice move was that rook sacrifice on move 19! |
|Apr-08-04|| ||ughaibu: There's a world of difference between a "rook sacrifice" and an exchange sacrifice. |
|Apr-09-04|| ||ArturoRivera: <ughaibu> Dont compell with me with meanings, everything is a sacrifice, could be seeking the exchange (see Torre Repetto vs Emannuel Lasker) or a sacrifice seeking mate, but every sacrifice that succed is not really a sacrifice beacause it was seeking the exchange or mate, so the player didnt gifted anything, just exchanged it.In chess cafes my friend we call that a "temporaly sacrifice" get decent and put opinions about the game, better moves, congratulations or something, everything but correcting the way of speaking of the users.
Anticipating your comprenhension thanks! |
|Apr-09-04|| ||ughaibu: Fine but it's not a rook sacrifice, it's an exchange sacrifice, the former involves a much heavier investment. If I said it was a queen sacrifice you probably wouldn't complain if someone corrected me, "rook sacrifice" is inaccurate enough to be brought to your attention. |

|Sep-02-04|| ||MoonlitKnight: Actually 19...Rxd2 isn't really a sacrifice at all. Black gets a bishop and two pawns, which should be worth slightly more than a rook in an endgame. And the bishop pair certainly dominates the position that arises. I would say that you can't call it a clean rook sacrifice when you get more than two pawns back. |
|Apr-19-05|| ||paladin at large: A very pretty game by Torre, seizing the initiative and ripping up the white position. He was probably very confident with 19. ... Rxd2, not only in terms of getting adequate and quick material compensation, but keeping White disorganized and on the run. |
