On top board in our group's rated match against a team from India, I made a partly-calculated, partly-intuitive Rook sacrifice which led to a very pretty attack (IMO).
Very nice buddy. I hope you find players of your strength at your new job.
Thanks for naming the thematic opening (I didn't know it was called Najdorf). I play a related opening from Fisher/et al., a lot (c4, e3, late castle, and relentless pressure down the g-file). Some really sharp sacrifices there - way to advance your mission in this game!
Really good game! Thanks for sharing. :)
absolutely fantastic!loved the rook sack...pure genius:)
And it's also a nice demonstration of color domination as noted. Neat.
completely agree with you
Very elegant yet brutal attack, I had looked at some lines after the Rook sacrifice, but had failed to unearth the lethal 38.h5!! A lovely game Rick, it demonstrates the value of intuition alongside concrete analysis. Thanks for sharing, it's well appreciated.
Thanks for all the kind remarks, people.
@RigaMagician : Yes, the 38. ... h5 move seems to justify my decision to sac the Rook and retain the e6-Bishop for the second wave of the attack.
A perfect attack - great game!
