(oh wait, how does this thng work again?)
I assume that the pawn sac is so that the King doesn't get mated or the Queen face connected pawns?
the pawn sac is to take the square d5 away from the WK. Without the availability of the d5 square the WK cannot catch the passed pawn. If the passed pawn were pushed first the WK can catch it because the d5 square will be available .
tempo, the box rule
Endgame is always the win game. Kind of.
Nice one, made me think for a second or two. Need to do that every once in a while.
why black didn't move the h6 pawn from the beginning?
