Sarah Anton: My best game

Victorian Sarah Anton, who is presently on tour on Europe, sent me this game via Facebook last night. And what a game! From her round 8 match in Saint Lo - here, she sacs a bishop as early as the eleventh move to eventually win against local Xavier Langlois.

Sarah enthusiastically tells me, "Look how the queen and knight worked together to restrict the two bishops and rook and the king to the back's [the] best game I think I have ever played".
