Good Game, Brilliant Game, Awesome Game, OVERPOWERED GAME
Question: On move 28 you played d1-d4. Couldn't you have played d1xd6? It seems to me that it would force mate sooner or that black would lose the Queen. Perhaps I am not seeing things and your moves are more sure to lead to black's defeat. (13:18 into the video)
If B takes then f4-h4 leads to mate. If Q takes, then f4-h4 (ch), B takes, QxQ.
Is this correct?
i like the fact that black didnt resign earlier ....its not good if the position gets bad then resign
by GM Ben Finegold
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.
