As some of you may know, since I won the Doeberl Minor in March I've probably played about a grand total of five chess games since then. I was talkingabout chess to a friend of mine before, who asked if he could watch me play. I obliged, and lo and behold, come up with this game:

White: Dion Sampson
Black: ?
1. e4 c5
2. Nf3 d6
3. d4 cxd4
4. Nxd4 Nf6
5. Nc3 a6
6. Be2 e5
7. Nb3 Be6
8. O-O Be7
9. f4 Nc6
10. Kh1 b5
11. f5 Bc8
12. Qe1 Bb7
13. Qg3 g6
14. Be3 Qc7
15. Rad1 O-O-O
16. Qf2 Rdf8
17. a4 b4
18. Bb6 Qb8
19. fxg6 fxg6
20. Qxf6 Rxf6
21. Rxf6 Bxf6
22. Bg4#

Nice sac, I agree. But did you have something planned if Black plays a different move 21, e.g. Kd7.

I think 21 Bg4+ Rf5 22 Rxf5 was best. If 22... h5 or Kd7, Rf8 mates. If 22... Ba8 23. Rf8+ Kb7 24. Rxb8+ Rxb8 25. Nd5 and White is a piece up.

Yes, I may have grabbed the rook too quickly, Bg4+ first was the goods. I seem to have a habit of having a winning idea in my head then sometimes changing the move order on the board...
