    Sharp Latvian, very odd line, cutest Latvian finish so far, had to share 😏

    The actual game number of the opening post is Game 8034525 (good game).

    An awfully risky line to play as Black on a C.C. site as the mainline advises
    White to shed both his Rooks for a stonking attack.

    Also not really good if needing a win as White has a forced draw. (in notes).

    Firesword - aadbaat RHP 2007 gives one an idea of how to do it.



    Another entertaining game with this line. The final position is worth a diagram.

    One has to wonder what the dickens White was doing there. I mean, really, I'm four hundred points (plus) below him, and I know that White's job in the Latvian is to attack the king, not to get his queen into trouble trying to collect wood.
