Tartakower would be proud!

I really, REALLY admire the play, style, writings, and ATTITUDE (on the board) of Savely Tartakower, and you players that love rich, complicated, attacking chess should check out his "My Best Games of Chess 1905-1954".

I am no Savely Tartakower, of course.  Nor am I even a master or an expert.  I'm only a 1400+ player.  But I try to play attacking chess.  Chess that, in terms of spirit, Tartakower would approve of, and occasionally I make a good move.

In the following game of speed chess both my opponent and I play an imperfect game, fortunately.  If neither of us would have made mistakes, we would not have reached the position which allowed a beautiful finish.  I'm not throwing this out there to put every move under the analytical microscope.  I'm just sharing a chess moment that made me, and, hopefully, Dr. Tartakower, smile.
