    Thought I'd share these, I am especially proud of the second game:

    18 Qh7 is lovely, nice games.

    Im not sure if the sacrifices are sound or not but they are both great bits of attacking chess.

    the first sac was sound..... I think..

    Both Rh8 and Rf7 lose.


    Rf7,, Bg6 and soon, d5..... it is going bad..

    And Rh8, Nh4, going bad.


    The second one, I am not sure,


    I say it is dubious,the bishop can soon occupy the b1-h7 diagonal....at least, you can have a draw ou of it, but Kg6 is very bad.

    18. e.p.+ should work without too much trouble, right?

    you are going to let the e-pawn hang. ?

    I sure you hope you ca afford it.

    After ...f5 Nxe6 Qb7 Nxf8+ Rxf8 Ng3 Fritz gives +-1.5. Also says black is better after 16... Kg8 but not by much. Definitely not a perfect game but the sac looked interesting & I thought there might be a mate in there somewhere.
