    Blitz Game - 10 min - 5 second interval.

    Thomas Jefferson once said this and I think about that quote when I play my games. Bg3-f4 - yes that is an amazing sacrifice.

    Why not simple 24. Ra-g1 to wina a Qeen??

    Black could have played 22 ... Qf6 or even 22. ... f6

    I didn't want to lose my queen I suppose. What really made me happy is when he decided to move his queen and leave behind his bishop.

    You would have won HIS queen, it's pinned against the king.
