There is also a selfish reason.
This is from OP's game.
This is from one of my OTB games in the 90's. (I'm Black)
The games are linked in as much I sacced my Queen. (instead of losing it).
I played 12...Bxe2 and why not. the lad too comfortable in his chair.
I've moved the Queen once. I'm not moving it again.
Then it was into a game I enjoy playing (a losing game). 🙂
He had a clear middle game win but my old allie the clock
helped out as he sneaked into time trouble.
So we came down to the ending in question.
He then pulled off a beatiful stroke which I fell into.
I don't mind losing if it's done with a bit of style.
