    I have sacrificed my queen before (too often) but I can't remember the last time I won doing so. Check it out.

    I had a queen sacrifice in this game Game 2076128

    It was actually a sound sacrifice, but I blew it my next move

    This is my best example of a queen sac. A couple rooks got thrown in too.

    Why is it not a sacrifice. I do agree its quite common; but what is it called?

    That can't be considered a sacrifice, becuase you're exchanging for two rooks worth more combined than the queen is?

    Game 1502169

    Not nearly as pretty as GalaxyShield's, and I suspect it might not have been sound, but too tempting to pass up....

    I think Ark's is easily the most impressive so far. That game was sick dude.
