Piece sacrifice fireworks by FC7PLAY!

If you are looking for a very aggressive way to play against the Petrov's Defense (also known as the Russian Defense), this game might be something for you.

Even if 1.e4 is not your usual opening choice, you will definitely be inspired by this game!
By December 5th, several of your best games of November were shared via our forum post, Mastodon, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Telegram.
