Dutch Defence Favorite Sacrifice

Better tactics is better chess. Three things help you improve fast: Learn specific opening moves, play lots of games, and train on tactical exercises. One tactical training program I've used for 10 years is Chessimo by GM Gilberto Milos. This Dutch Defence game between Imre Balog and Dirk Van Dooren ends with one of my favorite queen sacrifices.

Balog (2537) - Van Dooren (2333), 2nd Bundesliga West 2017-18 Germany GER (1.2), 08.10.2017 begins 1.d4 f5 2.Nf3 e6 3.c4 Nf6 4.g3 Be7 5.Bg2 0-0 6.d5 [6.0-0 d6 7.Nc3+/=] 6...Ne4 7.0-0 Bf6 8.Nbd2 Nc5 9.Nb3 Nba6 10.Be3 d6 11.dxe6 Bxb2 [11...Nxe6 12.Nfd4+/=] 12.Rb1 Bf6 13.Nfd4 g6 14.Bd5 Qe7 15.Na5 Bxd4 16.Qxd4 c6 17.Bg5 Qxg5 18.e7+ cxd5 [18...Be6 19.exf8Q+ Rxf8 20.Rxb7+-]
