A Sicilian Training Game and Line-Opening Sacrifices

Hi Chess Friends,

As I continue to attempt to sharpen my chess, I played another open Sicilian recently. I'm still catching up on some of the theory, but I think I played the following game decently. I particularly enjoyed the tactics between moves 19 and 25. The winning method involved three sacrifices, each one to open a new rank or file if a pawn recaptures. The game is below, followed a by few puzzles on the theme of opening paths for your pieces.

I hope you enjoy.
