    Have anyone tried the daring positional exchange sacrifice in their online games? I saw this powerful technique in GM games and they are subtly beautiful. Please post your personal games featuring positional exchange sacrifice.

    What is a positional exchange sacrifice?  Giving up space for a long distance mate or better position in a few moves?

    No, it is giving up a rook for a piece (deliberately losing "the exchange") in order to gain a positional advantage.

    Looks like none below masters level would try positional exchange sacrifice. This is one of my favorite game Kasparov - Shirov 1994

    Sacrificed my knight to go on the attack, which proved to be fruitful.  Was also okay with droppng the rook.  =)  I hope this qualifies.
