Apr-13-06  notyetagm: 19 ... ♖xf3! is the standard French exchange sacrifice on f3 that Black usually plays in the 3 ... ♘f6 Tarrasch.

Here in this French Advance game with opposite-side castling it is devastating, ripping open the White kingside and creating all kinds of weaknesses around the White king, all for the price of a mere exchange.
