    I can't help but show this, partly because I'm very excited by this game, and the fact that I played the winning side of a game I'm excited about kinda makes me a little proud... I've been putting in a lot of study time adhering to my speculative study plan as closely as possible and I think it is having very good results especially since I haven't been doing it for more than two months.

    Anyway to the game in question.

    lovely, achieves the height of elegance, a tactical miniature and a strategic masterpiece,
    what Eddy Gufeld would call your "Mona Lisa" game

    Thankyou. I wish I could have this same clarity of mind in all positions but I'm keeping my study specific to positions I will most likely see, which is based on my repertoire. It is encouraging to see the possibilities... May we all have many more enjoyable games worth posting.

    No Queen sac, but same mating pattern from an opening which is the opposite of the King's Gambit in many ways.

    I don't believe that is a common checkmating pattern, but certainly one that is good to be able to recognize.

    There's a point in time when Chess becomes an Extreme Sport.
