GM Ben Finegold sacrifices the exchange again in another brilliant combination. He channels his inner 19th-century persona and acts like Morphy in his stylistic treatment of the Sicilian.

And like many games from long ago, we even end with multiple queen possibilities and stalemate traps. Now that's a full game!
