Open Sicilian Lessons — Rapid Chess Game on — Sep 23, 2023

I played a rapid chess game recently on and was an attacking game in the Open Sicilian with chances for both sides. My opponent had the advantage, however they made a big positional error (b4?) that allowed my bishop to occupy and dominate a key diagonal (via Bc4). I proceeded to bring more pieces into the kingside attack and sacrificed a queenside knight to expedite the attack. I eventually crashed through for the victory. There were lots of lessons to be learned as both sides had areas for improvement.
