Double Piece Sacrifice in a Blitz Game

Roman – Monchess, 2001

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 Nc6 6. Bg5 e6 7. Qd2 a6 8.O-O-O h6 9. Bxf6 Qxf6 10. Nxc6 bxc6 11. f4 d5 12. exd5 cxd5

Hint, the initial piece sacrifice to open up the center is easy to spot, but the follow up involves another sacrifice – for the sake of getting both of White’s rooks into the game as soon as possible.
