A Nice Game!
GiLoCatur just arrived at Shah Alam from hometown from the three-day weekend at around 8.30pm. Quite a hectic weekend working at the palm-tree farm or "kebun". Attending an engagement reception. And interestingly had a couple of chess games.
While at hometown, Sarjan Ismail Ahmad who was representing Wilayah Persekutuan in the Interstate Chess Championship held in Sibu, Sarawak had texted or smsed his fourth round game against Abdullah Che Hassan. Quite a beautiful game with a Queen sacrifice. Hairulov had his annotation of the game in his blog.
Below is the game.

In GiLoCatur's opinion, black's 23rd move is the turning point and brilliant. White cannot capture the knight or else lost one major piece. Black really plays its knight well. Besides the 23rd move, the 28th move also fascinates GiLoCatur. GiLoCatur hopes to have a game like this. But GiLoCatur is just an amateur player with average national ratings. LOL ...
By the way, a big thank you to Ismail Ahmad for sharing the game.
