Fresh out of law school, FM Alisa Melekhina made her mark on the 2014 U.S. Women's Championship. In her favorite game, she went toe-to-toe (or is it heel-to-heel?) with the six-time champ. She passed on an Exchange sac on the kingside, only to use a bit of wanderlust to sac an Exchange on the queenside. With critical decisions being made right at time control, all three results were possible until the very end. Don't miss this spirited game!
