The Power of Quiet Moves

I am rarely satisfied with my own blitz games, but a few days ago I won a nice one that illustrates a rare topic of quiet moves.

This game saw a little bit of everything – positional struggle on the queenside, followed by a knight sacrifice on the kingside and finally... a little king move that crowned the attack!

It is not easy to consider a quiet move when you are in the midst of a tactical battle, but sometimes these little side steps can decide the game!
