This is an Alekhine game that you may not have seen before. On his tenth move, he takes a bold risk with the classic Greek gift bishop sac. He even has the audacity to quietly castle in the middle of an attack! Several more quiet moves follow, but the floodgates open on Alekhine's 19th move. He offers up one of his rooks, and the rest of the game is a blaze of sacrifices that ultimately results in a neat and economic checkmate.

Also, I have just gotten to 2000 points! Cool
