Instructive Attacking Blitz Game with a stunning Rook Sacrifice.

Exactly what do you think is instructive about it?

I guess it is that when your opponent leaves his king unprotected, it is a good time to attack.

I think 9.e4 Was a very good move. Black move 10...Nxe4 should be a Bad move, and 11...g6 was even worst. Black never did see  the danger. White punished all of that very well.

It is very hard for someone who is any less than a grandmaster to post anything about chess or tactics, because there are always people better to insult whatever is said, and to draw satisfaction from making the person look bad. It is very easy, being people who like to feel smart and important, to think that by making others feel or look unimportant or dumb, we somehow make ourselves better.

That is a general statement, not necessarily describing this situation. Just keep it in mind, and try to make sure that you are not subconsciously being the bully. It never makes you feel good for long, and it is addictive and enslaving. If other people's discomfort is where you find your happiness, you will start wanting more and more, and it will never give you anything.

I guess you are talking to me. I made an honest attempt to look into the position in question and found that the original claims for it were unclear. My response is nothing more than a challenge to the author to defend his claim that the position is instructive and stunning.

The game wasn't over at this point but white has many ways to win.  Rxf7 works because the position is overwhelming.

All I said was to ask for what the instructive part was beyond that it's good to attack when you have an overwhelming position.

 

I think chess is the wrong game for you.

That may be true, but when someone uses the words "instructive" and "stunning," they are just asking for it.  Maybe the OP is a kid and doesn't know better, but it is never too early to learn a small dose of humility.  No one below master should use terms like that to describe their own games, and even most masters would check their games with computer help first.

@ArtNJ:
That I agree with

In defense of the game, rook sacs on f7 or h7 to break through are common enough that it's a good pattern to know.

In this game it was more to do with the b1-h7 diagonal, but usually you're luring the king away from f7 or h7 (sac on one, infiltrate on the other).

xman720

This move looks extremely strong. Am I missing something? Targeting the bishop which is critically defending the b1 - f5 diagonal.

At any rate, I'm sure this isn't a great recommendation but I liked it. Your opponent should have tried 25. ... Bf5+ because if you take with the R your K might get into trouble and if you take with the Q, he takes the other B on h6 and holds out a few moves longer.

Optimissed

Yes after Nc5 white seems to have nothing better than Ka1 and white's attack is finished, so it wasn't a sound attack but it was fun.
