My favourite players are Leko and Korchnoi. Leko for overcoming the same problem like me (too many draws) and Korchnoi for playing the French and being just a great player over decades now. I come from Hamburg in Germany. Current national rating: 1724 (1873 highest) and a lousy Elo of 1793 from a tournament where I lost a lot of national rating points but had the opportunity to play an Elo player in each round.

(I've just re-read my own bio after quite a while and had to smile over the Leko part. I hope to see him overcoming that draw problem once more in the near future.)

supergrobi: I saw the idea of the queen sac, but needed very long to find Re4. Then I missed that after 30...Qxc3+ White can simply play Rd3, so I stopped after 30...Qxc3+. (Probably I was too happy after I've finally found Re4. At least I didn't give up too early this time and found a part ...

supergrobi: Ouch, I thought about 19.Nxb4 axb4 20.Rxa8 Qxa8 21.Nxe6 fxe6 22.Qxe6+ Rf7 23.Bg5 which doesn't work at all. :-(
