Black played Rh8-h6 and almost immediately the temptation for a queen sac was there. (3 0 game, 5-0-0, 10 acpl).lichess.org/oRSuMlGW/white#36
Nxd5!? was beautifully fancy
Nice start to the year @achja!For my part, I played a speculative (but somewhat unsound) sacrifice in my first full game of 2018:lichess.org/iF0z4EAr
@FletchMK64 Beautiful checkmate!
@FletchMK64 #4Very nice game ! It makes it look like chess is simple, just like in Petrosian and Fischer games.
@ibishop Thanks!@achja Wow - that's high praise indeed! Not sure it's anywhere near fully warranted, but I'll take it!
@mrkint Very nice! Particularly the finish, but the whole game, ignoring material in favour of piece play, makes a good impression. Well played.
lichess.org/WAYPxqi2/white#71By no means a mistake-free game, but I ended up with the advantage. :P
