In this game, playing the Fajarowicz variation, I checkmated my opponent after a double bishop sacrifice.
Very nice win. I believe in theory 4.a3 supposedly refutes Black's opening idea, but you simply outplayed your opponent outright. Instead of moves like 5.exd6 and 6.Nd2, (which imho does not seem optimum, even though they are not blunders,) would be more interesting to see how things turn out with 5.Nf3 or even 5.Qd5 played. But what do I know? Just a newbie learner =)
Awesome. Fajorowicz is now one of my favorite gambits. Thanks for sharing.
Awesome attack, thanks for posting the game.
Because of stuff like this:
wow!! what to say about west's attack!!!
why doesn't white chase the knight around in the opening with pawn pushes
Very nice game!
