A model attack

by P.Leisebein (Leipzig)


Novices are always in awe about sacrifices in attacking games.

Well, that has to be learnt, too. One has to keep an image of certain positions, which one has seen or learnt before.

The following game is an example how to conduct aBlackmar-Attack properly! White's novelty on move 14 is an important improvement in this line!
