Kind of lame game but kool knight sacrifice
Sacrifice looks strong, good game!
Thank you both!
That was fun - I have a fondness for mate delivered by a pawn.Perhaps black should have tried to make some play for the center earlier on?
I could've mated with the queen instead I think but the pawn was more fun lol :) and yeah youre right about the center
That looked very pretty. Especially Nxh8+ and the pawn checkmate. Nice. Well done !
So all these respectably rated players went through the sac, and not one noticed 8..dxe6 winning a pawn
Honestly I didn't analyze other variations, it just looked pretty to me.
I'm not that good...
mosai, please show us your personal top 10 of 100 % correct and perfect sacrifice games.
I don't know about 100% perfect games, but the majority of my sacrifices are sound.
Mine usually aren't. I think Tal admitted that a lot of his weren't, either.
Looks like a good sacrifice. I mean black has to play Kf6 instead of Ke8 and hope for the best. White should have a win there.
Please post your personal top 10 of your sound sacrifice games.
This is getting a little ridiculous.
I noticed dxe6 afterwards but who cares if it wasn't perfectly sound? Don't be such a downer mosai.
All sound sacrifices
Great now show us a game where you and your opponent make good moves, mosai.
That was an entertaining and fun game to look at mosai. Thanks for sharing !
