Brilliant underdogs
Compiled by David2009
--*--

Here are games where the losing underdog really goes for the winner. Nothing venture nothing win!

A difference in grading of 400 ELO points should mean you have a 10% chance of winning. A difference of 200 points means you have a 25% chance. Go for it!

In the first game, our underdog boldly goes trapping <Life Master AJ>'s queen - and so nearly pulls it off!

In the fourth game, the underdog smashes up F Urkedal in 2013 with the double Muzio gambit. Urkedal is no patzer - Norwegion champion in 2012
