I decided to take a look at this game rather accidentally. I think It was one of those days when the big boys were playing in the world blitz championship, and I was curious to see if the quality of the games played by the young minds would be any better (it definitely was!).
When I came across this game, my first impression was: oh my god, this was a HUGE swindle! However, the more I studied it, the more I realised how wrong I was: it was not a swindle at all, it was an incredible masterpiece!
Lukasz Jarmula is a young (17) International Master from Poland. What I find incredible about this game is his ability to sense (by means of intuition) that he had enough compensation for the pawns he was giving up.  I'm not exagerating here: not even the strongest chess engines can come close to guessing the validity of those pawns sacs (!!).
