Fastest Middlegame Ever
Ok, maybe not ever, but pretty quick. I made 7 captures in 8 moves in the middlegame to quickly go to the endgame. Even though I was the exchange down, I had two extra pawns and a fairly easy endgame win.
I'm still not sure what motivated me to play 15. ... Nxd2. Again, the only thing I can think is that I miscalculated. On the other hand, given that I had a ton of time left on my clock, and the calculation wasn't all that difficult, I'm not so sure. Maybe I just thought the g2 pawn was valuable enough to lose the exchange for. Who knows? In any case, it led to a good engame for me.
