    This is from a 5/0 blitz game.

    Even if it wasn't sound I liked the way my bishops workrd the king.

    You could've titled this "Knight sac - was it sound" as well. It wasn't. Should've played 18. ... Rgxf2+ 19. Ke1 Rf1+ 0-1

    and 23... Rg1 is mate dude

    Dude it was a 5/0 game so missing mates happen.

    More importantly: 19. Ke1 is impossible, dude!

    edit: No it isn't. I jumped a move.

    Sorry I can't see how Rf1 is checkmate. Kxf1, it's not covered.

    Completely sound. Not a huge sac though - you get R+N+P+P plus 2 rooks on the 7th for the Q.

    double rooks on the 7th (or 2nd) is almost like a cold beer after a good workout.

    I retire what I said.


    You should not call this a queen sac, you actually, win material,
