  OhioChessFan: Surprisingly low rapid and blitz ratings for a 2300 classical ELO. Here is a nice tactical shot, Black to play, from the 2014 World Juniors:

R Deepthamsh vs Harshit Raja, 2014

click for larger view

White has just played 30. Rd1, apparently thinking he's pinning the Bishop. But down a Pawn, Black sacs an exchange to initiate an attack on the White King with 30...Rxe5.

30...Rxe5 31. Qxe5 Qd3+ 32. Kb2 Bc3+ 33. Ka3 Qxd1
