  OhioChessFan: Somehow the idea of castling into it has always been a Kingside castle in my mind.

  Sally Simpson: HA! They took it!. I suppose if it's (ahem...) good enough to get published in NIC, Jonathan Rowson slipped it into one of his columns, then it is OK to go on here.

After all the opening excitment where I tried to hang as many as pieces as possible (he can only take one) - there are tricks and traps (and ghosts for him to see) in there if he took one.

I was considering him castling Kinside and looking at saccing something on e3. He himself spent ages pondering what happens to him if he 0-0. Suddenly he looked at his clock, shrugged his shoulders and 0-0-0.

Good. I've got dozens of these wee brillo's that were printed all over the place from my golden hey days. I'll submit more. I'll be on top of the sacrifice list before Christmas. :)

(is there an unsound sacrifice list?)
