  PizzatheHut: I hit the "Random Game" feature and got this sweet game. Black played the game very well. After 17. Nf3, I like how white's pieces are so restricted. Look at white's light squared bishop and c3 knight. They never really participate in the game. The final attack, including the exchange sacrifice and the follow up, is very instructive.
