Sep-27-10  ozmikey: What a corker of a game! This is what chess is all about...a pawn sacrifice for mounting pressure, a number of little tactical tricks to increase the advantage (17...Rd8 18. Nxg6 hxg6 19. Rxe6!), and a killer queen sacrifice to top it off, leading to a sweet long-distance mate. Gorgeous.

  perfidious: As a puzzle, this finish rates as no more than a Monday feature, aesthetic though it is to the eye. The treat for the connoisseur lies in precisely what <ozmikey> noted a time ago.
