It does not happen every day that one sacrifices a knight, a bishop and 2 rooks.

Today I played my second 45 45 game for the TL competition.

I had quickly prepared by going over slow time control games from my opponent from the last few years. I noticed that he changed opening repertoire, played quite solid but with a tendency to attack.

Somewhat to my surprise the game turned from quiet positional chess into ... Mikhail Tal style fireworks. Laughing
