#zwischenzug: partial redemption?

those of you who are interested in these posts about my chess fortunes might be pleased to know that i played a game last night which perhaps partially made up for the horrors of ‘black (last) tuesday’ – only partially mind. the season has now finished, but i played the following 20 minute game against a fairly strong opponent whose play i am not very familiar with. we didn’t record the moves at the time, but having enjoyed the game so much i worked out exactly how it went when i got home.

i have only briefly waved the game under Deep Shredder’s nose, but i think it’s fair to say that the computers don’t like the several sacrifices that i made. please bear in mind, however, that this was a 20 minute game.


Anyway, here’s the game for your amusement rather than instruction:
