    In this game, I tried to sac a Knight, then I sacced a rook and finally my opponent took a "poisoned bishop". It's one of the games where I sacced most material:

    If 19. axb3 cxb3 then white should go 20. Bxg7 instead of 20. c4. If after Bxg7 black goes 20... Qa5 then white goes 21.Qd4 and is not getting checkmated. If black goes 20... Bxg7 then 21. c4. Later, after the rook sacrifice, in one of your side variations, after 30...Ba4, white goes 31.Qd4+! and takes the bishop.

    I must admit I had drank a liitle more than I should have when both playing and doing the analysis... So I'm sorry if it's full of mistakes. Embarassed

    I did it thinking of 19.axb3 Rxb3, with an interesting position (his pawns, specially the one on b2, would be weak if the queen had to move, and after placing the queen on a good spot I had thought of an almost immediate Rxb2. I didn't calculate any big line, I just had a lot of potential ideas and was waiting for my opponent to move). However, my opponent didn't accept the sac, and I had to calculate again from the start
