  cu8sfan: This interesting game comes up when you search Raymond Keene 's page with the sac explorer. The explorer gives this as a ♕ sac on move 25. I understand that it must be extremely difficult to program the sac exp but is this really a ♕ sacrifice? It was clear that Black would get the ♕ back.

  chessgames.com: The Sacrifice Explorer has no concept of what is "obvious" to us chess players. In this case, all it sees is that Black captures White's queen and White doesn't recapture, but instead makes a bunch of moves, and finally gets the queen back. It fits the mold of queen sacrifice although it's uninteresting on that level. (It's still an interesting lesson in the power of a zwischenzug.)

In cases like this we can wipe out the Sacrifice Explorer record by hand. We're going to add it as an option to the "Submit a correction" link in the future.

Sep-24-06  SniperOnG7: Interesting to note that due to White's 7.Nh3, Black is able to go for ...c5 straight away (obviously due to the ...Bxh3 threat).
