   Oct-07-23 C Francisco Guecamburu vs V Vasnawala, 2022
mikealando: Another winning Q sac by Candela! She won the Women's World Junior Championship 5 days ago on the 2nd of October with a brilliant Queen sacrifice as black in a game that was a must win for her. Great play. [Event "FIDE World Junior Chess Championships U20"] [Site ""]
   Apr-13-23 Bologan vs S Halkias, 2003
mikealando: One more for my Queen sac collection
   Oct-20-22 A Reggio vs H Fahrni, 1905 (replies)
mikealando: Wow that Qsac would have listed as one of the great swindles. Something out of nothing. I only saw it via Stockfish before reading the comments.
   Nov-17-21 Y Hou vs M Sebag, 2011 (replies)
mikealando: wow. nice.
   Aug-09-21 Fischer vs Portisch, 1962 (replies)
mikealando: zugzwang = damned if you do, damned if you don't
   Aug-07-21 Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, 1858 (replies)
mikealando: One can only imagine the looks of amazement Duke Karl and Count Isouard gave one another shortly after Morphy's rook hit d8.
   Nov-26-20 J Sherwin vs Fischer, 1957 (replies)
mikealando: I coulda been a rook sac
   Jul-24-20 Spassky vs Petrosian, 1966 (replies)
mikealando: Wow, nice game. Only just seen it.
   Jun-01-20 Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967 (replies)
mikealando: That's why we have the Best of each year. Bobby Fischer was the very BEST in 1972. (Actually even by 1970) Spassky was the best in 1966. And today Carlsen is the number 1, on clear merit -:yet still has his detractors.
   Apr-02-20 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1987 (replies)
mikealando: Pun-ishment is the crime of unleashing beleaguered puns.😄
