    Black violated far too many opening principles, but your finishing combo was really nice.

    Good. You have taken a bit of time somewhere to study or look
    at the opening P & Q's. You opponent has not so you wacked him.

    You had a backward Knight sac to mate with a pawn in the same
    number of moves.



    14.Nc4+ vacating e5 for the pawn. 14...bxc4 15.e5 mate.

    Always difficult to see OTB a backward Knight sac

    Yes I have. Thread 91218. I even got a challenge with Korch going on. But alas I never found the time to seriously study The System...

    Anyway thanks for the input about the backward knight sac. Those little rascal moves are tough to spot that's for sure.
