Canfell's Brilliancy

This just in. As promised, here is a game between Greg Canfell and Kevin O'Chee from the weekend's Ryde-Easwood Open. 19. dxc6 is brilliant, a temporary rook sacrifice. I can't provide diagrams as I am on my work PC. Enjoy!

I'm an avid reader of your blog. You regularly post interesting games and it would be really outstanding if you could integrate interactive java applet diagrams like those in chess base and chess games, or at least provide links.

Thanks and keep up the good work.

what next tcg? next someone will want you to have that nifty word thing like what susan polgar has at her site to stop spammers. and i note that that other site is persisting with a certain something such that i get the code of conduct declaration bluEs

ps someone needs to actually discuss the game lest someone we all know becomes quite shirty ;)
