You must take your opponent into a deep dark forest where 2+2=5 and the path leading out is only wide enough for one. - Mikhail Tal, 8th World Champion

(Under Construction)
The Attacking Player Glossary:

<The Bible>: The Art of Attack in Chess by Vladimir Vukosvic the book that outlines how anyone can become an attacking player

<The Esteemed Competition>: Positional players, or more specifically the players who enjoy simple positions to complex, maneuvering to direct attack, closed games to open games, etc. There are many roads to Rome and if they score wins off their style, good for them! But attacking players must try to play their game, not Karpov’s.

<Heroic Defense>: Your opponent’s position is in shambles, your pieces are circles his king like shark, it’s only a matter of time before his position collapses… and he finds a way to get out of it! Follow the <Pillsbury Principle>

<The Magician>: The one and only Mikhail Tal (1936-1982)

<Pillsbury Principle>: As quoted by W.E. Napier, “So set up your attacks that when the fire is out, it isn’t out” –Harry Pillsbury The job is never done till mate is gotten.

<Power Players>: Neil McDonald describes these players in his book “Chess Secrets: Giants of Power Play.” Aggressive players who plan their openings to middle games to ensure pressure is always on the opponent. Think of them as the scientific attacking players compared to artists like Tal and Shirov.

<The Sicilian Defense>: The Cadillac of chess openings.

<Tal Logic>: “First, how to sac my queen, then rook, then bishop, then knight, then pawns.” –Mikhail Tal The attacking player’s thought process should follow these lines.

sleepyirv: I'm no chess genius, but it seems bad to move g3 and then lose your light-square bishop. Not sure I have specific advice to White to stop this from happening, but I would just strongly discourage him from that route.

sleepyirv: lol, before looking the game I thought "Why not I Krush Yu?" Brilliant, <Eggman>!

sleepyirv: A very nice birthday gift to me! I guess <cg> must be running low on puns if they have to use two of mine in one week, but I'm really enjoying it.

   Feb-22-21 D Rovner vs L Guldin, 1939 (replies)
 
sleepyirv: I'm taking it on faith this game is not a composition. The a-pawn push seems very cave man-y to me, but gosh the game afterwards.
 
   Jan-25-21 A Esipenko vs Carlsen, 2021 (replies)
 
sleepyirv: <The Age of Majority> As a Sicilian aficionado, I really enjoy a meat-and-potatoes game from Espienko here: sac the g-pawn, sac a knight, win. Though I probably would have overlooked it if the opponent wasn't name Magnus Carlsen!

sleepyirv: Black lost on time. https://www.uschesschamps.com/2020-...

sleepyirv: Dear Santa, It's been a rough year for many of us, so we could use some extra Christmas cheer. Hmm... CHristmas CHeer. Why not a little chess?
 
   Dec-20-20 Dubov vs Karjakin, 2020 (replies)
 
sleepyirv: By defeating Karjakin in this manner, Dubov becomes <The Minister of Offense>.
