Hi, and welcome to my Shortest Win series! This is the ninth installment, featuring my wins in under 25 moves. I start with OTB games then online games.
Here's the game (which I posted before) with a nice Queen Sacrifice to finish off the game.
Hold on tight!
Now to start my raging attack (continuation).
Elephant gambit, huh? I never knew it had a name. I just called it...Abhishek's gambit :-)
haha :). Now that I play it so often people are scared at me, in my last tournament right before the round was starting I saw my opponent preparing against my gambit, with help from people who beat me against it. He still lost though.
I've never seen this played outside of really crappy blitz players (I'm sure you play it better than them). I had no idea the greek gift sac was a theme in this opening.
