   Jul-19-18 G Gajewski vs G Daubenfeld, 2001 (replies)
Delboy: A remarkable short game with a string of sacrifices and tactical blows in its 15 moves. The final Nc3 is glorious, when 15. ... dxc3 is met by 16. Rxf7 Rxf7 17. Rf1. If earlier 14. ... exf5 then 15. Qe2+ Kf8 16. Qe7+ Kg8 17. Nc3, followed by Qe8+ and Bh6
   Jul-16-18 V Ikonnikov vs J Maiwald, 2004
Delboy: Surely the final move is recorded incorrectly, as white then simply captures the queen with 49. Nxh2. I presume the real last move was 48. ... Qxh4+, with 49. ... Ne1# to follow
   Jul-14-18 H Dobosz vs J B Bednarski, 1980
Delboy: A magnificent sacrificial attack. I guess black's bold play was driven by his instinct rather than the calculation of all possible lines. For example, white might have castled on move 14, though the king is then not necessarily any safer
   Jul-12-18 Sliwa vs A Tarnowski, 1963
Delboy: And just like that white is completely lost, e.g. 33. Qe3 Qe1+!
   Jul-12-18 A Filipowicz vs W Schmidt, 1962
Delboy: Nice Tuesday puzzle position after 27. Re2
   Jun-30-18 M Godena vs S De Eccher, 1987
Delboy: 15. Bxc5 is a beautiful conception in a seemingly harmless position where queens and a pair of knights have already been traded. At the price of a knight, white rapidly mobilises his remaining pieces and ties black up in and nasty pin that ultimately leads to material advantage
   Jun-27-18 O Sparwel vs S Mihajlov, 2013
Delboy: One of the earliest games in the database of the sacrificial openong variation featured in yesterday's GOTD. The later moves are equally entertaining, ending with a glorious queen sacrifice 28. ... Rxd2! (29. Rxe6 Rd1+ and mate in three)
   Jun-23-18 J Aagaard vs M Bosboom, 1999
Delboy: Great finish with 28. ... Bxg3+. Nice also that black went for the clinical mate with 30. ... Nc4+ rather than the prosaic knight fork 30. ... Ne4+
   Jun-23-18 M Bosboom vs M Timmermans, 2012
Delboy: Interesting how white first gives up the exchange, and later offers to sacrifice more, to keep black in a bind. Maybe taking the bishop on g5 on move 15 or 16 had to be tried, one line being 15. ... fxg5 16. N3xe5 a6 17. Ba4 g6 18. Qf3 Ra7 19. Re1. Dangerous and unpleasant for black,
   Jun-19-18 R Cosulich vs M Damjanovic, 1971
Delboy: Nice puzzle position after white's 20th move (CG, this game appears twice in your database)
