    Welcome to the seventeenth installment of My Shortest Wins! 

    We're finally going to chess.com games! Today's game is a win against a higher rated player. Watch how I took advantage of his poor move d5, attempting to win a piece. 

    Here's the game!

    "XVII," Cyrus?  Jeez, what is this, an Olympiad? Laughing

    I don't know why, it's kind of exciting to do Roman numerals; modern numbers are too common.

    Also, I'm not sure I agree that your idea (clever as it was) truly did "equalize at least."  Certainly his ill-starred pawn hunt with his queen allowed your pieces to take up aggressive posts; but if he had played instead 16 Rae1 it looks to me like White can still play for the advantage.

    Very nice game indeed. Reminds me of Tarrasch vs Nimzowitsch...

    double bishop sacrifice! This is no sacrifice, as I COULD take the queen back, but I would be in a losing position.

    Ok, what should I call this mate? Any suggestions? Do you know any players who played it?
