The power of discovery - Why open lines against the king cause trouble

Hello everyone!

The discovered attack is one of the most principled, yet most beautiful tactics in chess. But not just the discovered attack is a powerful weapon itself, but also the threat of it - especially to the opened king, as it can be seen in the following game I played today, when everything started with pawn sacrifices opening lines against the opponent's king, and a beautiful exchange sacrifice to remove the rest of the king's covery  ...

I hope you enjoyed this game as much as I did, especially the nice exchange sacrifice on move 16!
