This was a good game. I'm having some great fun the RHP Championship.
I've won 12 of my games so far.
I set a wee anti-castling trap which catches my opponent unaware.
I get Knights Fantasic on d4 and e4.
I sac a Bishop using the loose piece that took it to gain attacking tempo.
I thought I was getting a checkmate but there was wriggling involved
and I nearly ditched the Bishop sac idea.
Frustrating moments those, I had played the perfect game and no mate as a reward.
I sac the Bishop not really knowing what I was getting, just a very good postion.
OK I'm stubborn and refuse to let an idea go.
I knew I'd most likely get my bit back but when the smoke clears is it enough?
It eases out to an endgame plus for me.
My opponent had a chance to play a wee trap back at me.
(One good trap deserves another.) but I had seen it coming.
Good game, I love it when I get dragged to my board digging out tricks.
