This is one of my most beautiful games that I have ever played with ChessMood Openings! :) 

I added some variations to show some beautiful lines. The fireworks start on move 15.

OK, I made some mistakes, for instance 11.f5 seems way better than 11.Ng5. However it's a win against a titled player, 900 fide points above me. A miniature with the key idea of rook sacrifice and the typical development ideas of the repertoire (like the manouvre Qd1->Qe1->Qh4).

This is my game against Khoi Pham (https://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml?event=1054988, U14 Dutch Champion) which I played in the International Kangaroo Math Camp's (in Berlin) chess competition, this was a 15 minute game only. (I won the competition with one draw in 7 rounds, which was being flagged in King+Queen against King)

Here is a remarkable game I played after a 2nd move blunder (2.Nf3) against the Sicilian defence. This is a Daily game played on chess.com.  I have left in lines I examined and made some commentary on the game. Hope you enjoy!
