A Rook sac followed by a quiet move

  • #1

    On top board in our group's rated match against a team from India, I made a partly-calculated, partly-intuitive Rook sacrifice which led to a very pretty attack (IMO).

                  Very nice buddy. I hope you find players of your strength at your new job.

    Thanks for naming the thematic opening (I didn't know it was called Najdorf). I play a related opening from Fisher/et al., a lot (c4, e3, late castle, and relentless pressure down the g-file). Some really sharp sacrifices there - way to advance your mission in this game!

    And it's also a nice demonstration of color domination as noted. Neat.

    Thanks for all the kind remarks, people.

    @RigaMagician : Yes, the 38. ... h5 move seems to justify my decision to sac the Rook and retain the e6-Bishop for the second wave of the attack.

    A perfect attack - great game!
