  fredthebear: This game has it's share of aggressive action.

At move 14 with White castled queenside and the Black king unmoved, the position provides a flash back to the famous Reti-Tarktakower off-hand miniature that lasted just 11 moves total. Here, Black still has the e-pawn instead of taking White's e-pawn from yesteryear. So, there's no queen sac into Reti's mate to be had in this one.

However, White does find a way to bust up the center. He sacs one rook on the Black e-pawn and then pins the Black queen with the second rook for a fair trade-off. Material is even but then White puts on a three-piece kingside attack, making use of a pin on the open g-file. The passed pawn on h6 (previously grabbed once before) is vital to White's cause. I don't think 26...fxg5 to un-double the f-pawns instead of 26...hxg5 would have changed the outcome.
