In a game of speed chess, I used a sacrifice to win my opponent's queen. My opponent, who played black, was Cravox of Brazil. Here are the moves of the game along with my commentary:
1. e4 c5
2. d4 cxd
3. c3 dxc
4. Nxc3 d6
5. Nf3 Nf6
6. Bc4 g6
It is better for black to play e6 in order to challenge my bishop's control of the a2-g8 diagonal.
7. e5 dxe
Black probably expects me to play Qxd8+ on my eighth move, but I have a better option.
8. Bxf7+ Kxf7
Black's move is forced.
With the loss of his queen, black decides to resign. Black fails to anticipate my bishop sacrifice which wins the black queen. I also sacrifice two pawns for a lead in development, but the bishop sacrifice is the one which decides the game.
