Sorry guys, I haven't really been able to get on chess.com lately due to the large amount of homework I have to do every night for school. School also prevented me from playing in the Carlsen vs. the World match. Frown However, I always thought the idea of a minute per move was silly.

Anyway, you've all probably heard that Bent Larsen, a legendary grandmaster, passed away recently. This is one of his great games. He sacrifices his queen early on to gain an advantage, and slowly begins to attack his opponent's king with his rook and minor pieces. Eventually, he is able to lure the Black king in to a mating net, which sets up an exciting finish.
