  Gilmoy: Not a sac; it's a straight trade of Q for N+P+R. Sacking the 3 pawns before that was more noteworthy.

Declining Black's Qd8 is cute, but also pretty straightforward. 28.Nxd8? Rxd8 means White dropped 3 pawns just to win 1 back, which is losing. <28.Nxf8> properly uses the untouchable double on f8, and dogpiles on Ng6 (which Black's Q cannot answer).

White ends up with a near-ideal 5-on-3 with a shooting gallery, which is matish. After <33..Bf7> returns all the material, White is simply ahead.

Black probably should have gotten the Ra8 into it somehow. Maybe that was White's <strategic> plan: you can sac galore because he's down more than a piece.

  Shams: <jrofrano> Nice find, it's a great attack indeed.
Jun-09-13  jrofrano: <Gilmoy> So white gives up his queen for unclear compensation; and it's not a queen sac? So what is a queen sac than according to you?
