Chessblogging: one of the more violent moves I’ve ever made.

I made the rook sac on move 25 purely on intuition in a 3 minute game, but on subsequent analysis, every single line ends in forced mate.

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 a6 6. Be3 Qc7 7. Qd2 e6 8. O-O-O b5 9. Be2 Nc6 10. f3 Nxd4 11. Bxd4 e5 12. Be3 Bb7 13. g4 Be7 14. h4 Rc8 15. g5 Ng8 16. f4 exf4 17. Bxf4 Rd8 18. h5 f6 19. gxf6 Nxf6 20. Qe3 b4 21. Nd5 Nxd5 22. exd5 O-O 23. Rhg1 Rc8 24. Bd3 Rfe8 25. Rxg7+ Kxg7 26. Rg1+ Kh8 27. Qd4+
1-0

(of course, as you can tell by the fact that he let me get away w/ inadequately defended center pawns, my opponent was a bit weak…)
