Chess Sacrifices and Tactics that End Games in the Opening!

Tactical Terminations in the openings!

A speculative attempt by White in an Advanced French defense with 4.Nf3 rather than 4.c3 allows White an aggressive position that turns tremendously tactical. A dramatic Bh6 piece sacrifice allows the White pieces to come crashing through. Roman returns to Black’s correct course of action which would have stopped White’s dramatic attacks at their source.

We then see an Accelerated Dragon that is thought good for White but Roman’s analysis turns that assessment on its head with a simple move (…Re8), finally, we see a lovely Black Queen Sacrifice that looks like it has been trapped but Black acquires great compensation!
