Four Knights Game Piece Sac

Four Knights Game allows Black to copy White, but it cannot go on forever. Imagine the scenario where Black copies everything until White plays checkmate and then Black plays checkmate too late. Game over. White wins. Here Mikhail Kobalia as White played 7.Bxc6. After Ilya Chekletsov recaptured with 7...bxc6, White moved the knight away with 8.Ne2 to avoid 8...Bxc3. Later Grandmaster Kobalia sacrificed a bishop on h6, a tactic familiar to Blackmar-Diemer Gambit players. Check out my Four Knights Playbook. This book also includes both 3.Nc3 Three Knights Games after either 2...Nc6 or 2...Nf6.
