Originally posted by USArmyParatrooperI would have played the sac in the first game without worrying much whether it is sound. It looks good enough to cause white major defensive headaches.
My opponents' blunders not withstanding, were these "sacs" sound? In both games I gave up material (but not big material) for active play against my opponents' king. Both games were won on blunders, which makes it difficult for me to decide if they were sound moves.
In this game I am black and I gave up my knight for two pawns.
