  GrahamClayton: Black refuses the offer of the second rook with 12...♕b2, but White sacrifices it with 13.♖b1 anyway!
Aug-05-19  shivasuri4: Black greedily gobbles up the a1 Rook, and then realised the trouble he was in. The simple 11...Qxd2+ was better.
Aug-05-19  shivasuri4: Even after 14.Nxe6, Black could have hung on with 14...Qb6, defending d8.
Aug-05-19  hdcc: Greed is not good.
Aug-05-19  mike1: it is ok to be greedy.... just play
14..Qb5+ and white needs to find c4
to be even a touch better.

  Keyser Soze: Nice game, what about the pun?
Aug-05-19  Jack Kerouac: <Keyser Soze>
Coleslaw is a type of salad made by shredding cabbage. Westbrock got rocked and shredded.
I actually have a degree in punmanship.
Aug-05-19  Momentum Man: The best coleslaw is the kind with tangy sweet dressing made with vinegar

this game features some tangy sweet sacrifices by White
