my best checkmate (possibly game) ever!

Cali_boy613

this game has a couple inaccuracies, so its definitely not perfect, but a double piece sac at the end definitely makes it my best checkmate. Kings gambit, ironically against a guy named mikhail. Thoughts?

Thanks. Yeah, this is a much better example of the opening than the game I played against you

I always loved how games in the kings gambits looked

yeah, that's a nice game for a beginner to play. Follow the basic principles, get a better position, and get a tactical shot.

Yeah, you know, I find that when I get to wrapped up in attacking the king and controlling the f file in the KG I tend to underdevelop and lose. But when I remember to focus on controlling the center, develop my pieces and pay attention to both sides of the board the KG really works for me. 

Of course, this is true with any opening, but with an opening as aggressive as the KG it can be especially easy to develop tunnel vision and launch an attack that fizzles out

Hmm.

i wouldn't call the piece sacrifices "sacrifices"

they are more you hanging a bunch of peices and luckily finding a mate out of it...

Really nice game

Gz.  Might not be a high rated game, but it was still entertaining.  Any time you can sacrifice a couple and then get mate it tends to be aesthetically pleasing.

If he says they were intended sacs, I'm sure they were, Corelli. Nice combo !

If you think they are not sacrifices you're just being jealous. The mate is forced after Nc6+ unless black gives up his queen.

Black was pretty much losing after 7..Qd7
