A sacrificial orgy

by P.Leisebein (Leipzig)


The BDG is like a drug! An array of combinative motives are part and parcel of the gambiteer.

Once you mastered this, the adrenalin can increase during a game.

The following game, played during a thematic tournament, inspires by its correct course of combinations.

When you look at the game, it is difficult to see where black went wrong.
