  GrahamClayton: One of the rare examples where the player who accepts the double rook sacrifice manages to win.

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <GrahamClayton> Funnily enough, the double rook sac here was actually perfectly sound; White had to play 14.Qc7!

14...d5 (14...Na6 15.Qd8 and Black's king is in too much trouble; 14...Kxf8 15.Qd8#) 15.Qxc8 Nd7 (there's nothing better) 16.Qxa8 Nxf8 and suddenly it's White who's a piece up. (With the usual thanks to my silicon friend.)

May-18-16  RookFile: That's an important difference. On c7 the queen also hits the bishop on c8, will still having the possibility of going to d8.
