This position came from a blitz game earlier today. I thought it was interesting enough to show you guys! hope you like it.
EDIT _ THIS WAS A 1 MINUTE 0 DELAY bullet game
Anastasia's mate, pattern recognition paid off. Nice.
21.Ng6# but your Queen and Rook sac mate is pretty awesome.
20 Nf6 20... Kh8 (only move b/c double check)
Faster w/o the sacs, but not as fancy
This ending reminds me of a fatality in Mortal Combat, cool to look at, but not needed to win
This mate is really cool if your opponent lets you but if your opponent plays really well its a long mate.
This variation from the engine Houdini is long because both sides play really well but this mate is even BETTER because White sacks both rooks and his queen! - 21... Rf6 22. Rxh7+ Kxh7 23.Rh1+ Rh6 24. Nxf5 d3+ 25. cxd3 Rxh1 26. Nh4+ Kh8 27. Ng6+ Kh7 28. Nf8+ Kh8 29.
Qh7+ Rxh7 30. Ng6#
Why not 8.e5, immediately pushing the "e" pawn?
And I think you missed a couple of mates at the end.
20.Nf6+ Kh8 21.Rxh7#, and at the next move, the immediate 21.Ng6#.
But I do love you play the Bishop variation in the KGA. That's what I play and it leads to unknown wild territory!
