Bulletin No.73 – Local Games: A Stunning Novelty and 2 Black Kingside Attacks
Today we feature a brilliant opening sac that was way ahead of its day, and two attacks against the castled white king. Plenty of blood all round!
A Stunning Novelty!
When Martin Clancy played this game in 2005 the idea of Nd5 in the Morra was basically unknown and must have given his opponent quite a shock. It was inventive, courageous and strong, and led to a very entertaining game!
A Vicious Attack!
David Fuller sacs an exchange and goes on a king hunt. Join his journey with his usual lively commentary!
Active Pieces are Good Pieces!
This game is a great example of the strength of the initiative. Kevin Goater uses superior piece activity to overwhelm a strong opponent. We pick the game up at move 18.
