Greek Gift

J'adoube recent Art of Attack video reminded that there is a detailed chapter on the Classic Bishop Sacrifice on h7 and I plan to dive into during the next week. There is a detailed analysis to help determine positions where the Sac is correct and when it is not.

It also appears that Patzer2 of chessgames.com created this nice collection of Bishop Sacs on H7. I'll report in what I learn.


Here is a quick game I played on the internet with a Sac on f7. to view cut and paste the game into viewer on the left.
