    Game 4821342

    This morning, I've linked this game in the 75 pages thread : CHECKMATE in under 20 moves. But I got the feeling that a dedicated thread for Horse Ballet was missing... Sorry for posting twice the same subjet.

    Here's a nice game for knight shenanigans.

    White is the Brazilian GM Henrique Mecking, Black is the British / Armenian IM Mike Basman.

    The fun starts with 22. ... Rxe4

    I like Rxh3...I needed some time to figure out why the R can not be taken...because Qh4 followed by threats on the long diagonal...

    Just put it in pgn tags - (pgn)the pgn of the game(/pgn), but replace ( with [ and ) with ].
