  whiteshark: "This is the type of finish we all dream about - sacrificing the queen to force checkmate being the ultimate example of mind over matter in chess. And yet, remember how Browne achieved this: by using a largely intuitive, not fully calculable sacrifice that seriously weakened Bellon's kingside while methodically bringing all his pieces to bear against the enemy king. He didn't use "magic" of any kind but rather simply applied some basic attacking concepts that you, too, can learn to work with through study and practice."
