  fredthebear: What Uncommon Pairs!! I surely haven't seen a game with two White knights on a1, b1 (see 19.NxBa1), two sitting rook sacrifices drop the exchange (see 18...BxRa1 and 23...BxRf1), and then the bishop pair in the sweet center d4, e4 (see final position) wins. How does such happen?!?! Some may find it difficult to believe.

After witnessing the power of prayer, faith moving mountains on The 700 Club, I'm inclined to believe this blitz game is legitimate. The possibilities in chess, and in life, are almost endless. We become accustomed to the routine, the ordinary, but almost anything can happen under changing circumstances.
