In his best game from one of his best tournaments ever, the witty GM Ben Finegold shows off a very pleasing attack on a 2700 player. "When your attack is so strong, your opponent's rating won't save him," Finegold says as he picks apart the Hedgehog formation with a series of double-exclam moves. Finegold's sacrifices work their way up the value ladder - first a pawn, then knight, then bishop, and finally a rook! He produces one of the gems of his long chess career.
