Sack and attack!  Isn't that what all the cool kids do?  Well, maybe not, but sometimes you gotta heat things up.  happy.png

 

This is a rapid (G30;d5) and rather exciting game where I do just that.  I played with the black pieces against Immanuel (Jim) Halm, rated 1500 USCF, at the Parma chess club in December 2017. I was rated 1522 USCF at the time.  Black wins a pawn in the opening, but pressure mounts on the kingside and a critical position is reached after 22. Bf4! creating a deadly pin on my knight. No likey!

 

Feeling fiesty and sipping a glass of red Midna sacrifices the knight (completely intended?? haha) for a pass pawn and an infiltration & fierce attack on the queenside! rawr! With the power of thousand fireballs the white king is then attacked. White pulls back to defend a piece up. Can white survive the complications maintaining his defense in time pressure? Can Stacia actually attack? (very suspicious!) Hope you enjoy! -Stacia xo
