    This game was a fun one. I sac'd a knight for an open file and tactical combinations. At first I wasn't really hopeful but then on the analysis board I saw some interesting stuff and decided to try it anyway. The position was interesting but I don't know for sure who was winning untill a certain point. Yeah I got his king on the run, yeah I got some pawns, yeah I got a pawn on the seventh and his pieces were kinda doing nothing but I didn't know for sure who was winning. But on move 22 my opponent made a mistake and I was winning from then on.

    So please tell me was this sac sound and the reasons I listed enough to do it or did I commit some oversight and got lucky on move 22?

    Game 4415655

    Ps: If I have time I'll annotate this one

    I'm sorry, I don't quite follow your line. What would you do after 7. Bxb2?

    c'mon guys this is not rocket science, he obviously meant move 9

    Got so wrapped around the number that I didn't even follow throught the game to see if he meant anything else.
    And I think I had a very valid reason not to play 9. ... Bxb2 I just don't remember it now...

    I keep watching the game and i really can't understand what your opponent is trying to do from move 3 till the end.I don't agree with any of that...By the way...why did you promote your pawn to rook?Didn't want to see a queen fall?

    The rook promotion was enough so that's what I did.
    And his pawn moves at the beginning really freaked me out in the sense that I didn't want know what to do precisely to counter his lack of development.

    Too many targets, too many holes. And also the fear of a pawn storm on my king side. Players that make those walls with the pawns just get me nervose.

    And was this sac sound? Who was winning untill move 22?

    I would have done the same with the knight.I think you were the one who was winning from move 3 till the end.
