Yikes, talk about super sharp tactics! Probably why I steer utterly clear of these Sicilian lines, but looks like I'm missing out on a lot of fun.

I want to say that 17... Bf4 was a great resource. It's moves like these that I wish I could find over the board. The illusion of being a blunder that hangs a pawn and giving white the initiative after Nxf4, exf4. 19. Qxd6 was very nice.

A very fun game. Thanks for sharing and I'll definitely be checking out your other games.

Great games!

Now I am just afraid your voice will give away the result (if you lose) in the next round.
I particulay liked game 2 with the king walk(s).

Kind regards

By the way. Do you have any Swedish relatives? As I am from sweden and Minnisota was popular to emigrate to in the old days.
You seem to have a swedish like surname.

Thanks for the game, augelmo. I enjoyed hearing your thought process in the ending and why you chose those specific lines.

"Augelmo", as Black, wins despite an inaccuracy at 2:52. There's a simple but winning tactic at 16:54.
