    Having been inspired by the illustrious Morgski one had time to attempt two
    positional sacrifices, one for penetration of the seventh hoovering up some pawns
    and the exchange paving the way for two passers,

    Nice! You give me too much credit though, chancer is probably a better word than illustrious...
    The first sac seems the more risky of the two. I think GP did part of a blog a while ago about a Rook being completely inefficient at stopping two pawns, good to have it illustrated so 🙂

    Lol, yeah the bishop sac is one of those moves that one plays in blitz without even
    thinking about it, i knew i would get at least, in material terms two pawns for the piece,
    but who plays chess materially except the silicon beast!

    Certainly better than "chancre". Yuck. I had to look it up. Thought it was some kind of American spelling.
