  Cheapo by the Dozen: Decisive bishops-of-opposite-colors endgames always intrigue me. This one was particularly interesting because the eventual winner sacrificed to go a pawn down.

Earlier in the game, White played a Yugoslav Attack (classic castling on opposite sides line) but then, instead of attacking Black's kingside very emphatically, raced to an endgame, which is not what I've have expected in the Dragon's heyday.

Opposite Decision(s)

  HeMateMe: White certainly had a good eye for a wiining endgame setup. His LSB controlled the queening squares for both of his pawns--black can't block him.
