  fredthebear: Black's initial sacrifice of Bishop and Rook on the third rank did not work out in the end, but it was an active, entertaining game.

  ChessHigherCat: Black dwarfed
Jan-18-17  nimh: It's interesting that none of strongest engines at my disposal have the bishop sac among the 4 best moves at lowest available depth. Even the weakest engine on CCRL 40/40 list - Ziggurat 0.22 - never considers it. Looks like it was an evaluation issue; a very faulty one.

By contrast, picking 21... Rxf3 is a search problem, even an engine as strong as Stockfish 8 sees it as the best move until d15.

But I wonder what kind of compensation could there be for black in exchange for the bishop.
