    Well, not a model game by any means but I thought the middle game was very interesting. After I blundered early I was liberated and played a combination of sacrifices that I thought were nice.

    I'm white.

    yes very brave and much more interesting than those boring endgames that seem to fascinate our more highly rated and esteemed colleagues, alas, chess like art suffers from intellectual snobbery, but should that put us off enjoying little moments like yours, never may that be so, well done and congratulations!
