Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-26-04  ConLaMismaMano: Wow, what a game, this guy Christiansen is an incredible attacker!
May-03-09  hedgeh0g: GM Christiansen himself goes over this game in his "Attack with LarryC!" series on the ICC. For me, 22. Rxb5!! is an astounding move, because it's very difficult to see the compensation for the Rook. It's only a couple of moves after the sac that you see just how important decoying that key defensive bishop was.

This very unusual sac was the highlight for me. Great game!

Nov-29-10  hedgeh0g: Bump for unusual combos! :D
Nov-29-10  rapidcitychess: After a while, I got the idea of Rxb5. Fairly simple.

The idea is to win a tempo in order to utilize a pin.

Very interesting idea, and worthy of applause.
