Another immortal game

By which I mean, one in which amazing, deep moves are made, and after a flurry of sacrifices, the king is slain, with each of its opponents’ remaining pieces playing a role in dropping the final curtain. For those of you who care for such things, Enjoy!

18. Rd6 was the boldest sacrifice I’ve ever seen – just to stop a pawn moving forward!

White teetered on the edge of disaster for about 10 moves, but had supreme confidence in his game plan. It was like watching a flamboyant fencing demonstration by a master on a tightrope.

Yep, that was one wild and crazy game. Just goes to show what can be achieved by winkling and niggling the King into the centre rows. I’d call it a good Knight’s work.
