Recently I played this game where I sacrificed my bishops to force a winning queen versus rook ending.
great game...and i thought that black started really excellent,but white finally deserved the win....not only because of the great sacrifices but because it is relative the fact that 2 Bishops are 6 points and one rook 5....
very interesting and nice game!
thanks for posting
white's play seemed more brilliant
I was at this event, and I saw the position at about move 40 and figured it was a win for Black with some technical difficulty.
I came back just before move 50 and wondered how you had managed to "lose" one of the Bishops.
The resulting K+Q vs K+R ending could have been difficult, but White's K was not well placed to defend it.
that is why two bishops are amazing. cool game!
beautiful... I believe you had a winning endgame even keeping the bishops, but that was a nice and simple way to finish it. It takes some guts and precision to go for sacrifices like that.
Very nice... the pawns on the sixth are deadly weapons.
