    Game 2215919

    I was quite happy with myself for spotting this, and I'm pretty sure that I covered all the angles. Was I right that there was no way back for him after Rxb7?

    Good work, after Rxb7+, Kxb7 you had continous checks and a mating net formed with the help of the knight, all of blacks moves were forced and there was no way out. Black did have the option of not accepting the sacrifice by playing Ka8, but then
    23.. ka8
    24. Qa6, Bd4 (The only move to prevent mate)
    25. Rxa7+!, Bxa7
    26 Nc6 and mate is forced.
    Beat me to it

    Good game, though. Danish Gambit is a risky one After 8...Be6, why not Nd5 developing a piece while attacking the queen and keeping the bishop pair?

    Good point. It was probably the better move.
