Match of the Century 6: Positional Rook Sacrifice!
Nov 30, 2011
We continue with the match between Labourdonnais and McDonnell. What, another one?? Hey, hey, no complaining. If you think this video series is long, just remember that the actual match was 85 games long! In this game, the two champions walk down a well trodden path, following the opening from last time, until Labourdonnais suddenly uncorks his new idea...a positional rook sacrifice! Will the sacrifice be sound, or will the rook only be the first to fall before McDonnell's awesome might?
