Classic Bishop Sac.

pvmike

Here's an excellent example of the bishop sac on h7 from one of my live chess. I think this type of attack is essential knowledge for any player. The book "The Art of Attack in Chess", it has a whole chapter devoted to the classic bishop sac, It's worthing getting the book just o read that chapter, I've gotten alot wins silimlar to this one.

Isn't this specifically called a "greek gift" sacrifice?

Great game!

I don't get why your opponent was trying to transpose into a bogo-indian on move 5, it's so clear that it wasn't going to work... I don't know if Ng4 looked better, that was screaming for 10...Ng5 (which would have put your attack to rest but would have created a losing game anyways)


But then again you have a much higher rating than me, so I will shut up now. Tongue out

yeah his fifth move didn't really make any sense, I don't know maybe he wanted to take the c3 square away from my knight.

No, Bishops are to special to give away.

pvmike

well I wasn't really giving it a way since taking it loses.
