We present below a selection of games from the tournament book of the Barcelona Championship. In looking over the volume we were struck by the number of instances in which a White Bishop was sacrificed on the f7 or h7 square, and we have chosen to devote today's entry to that theme. For example:
Next, Max Albin, the tournament winner, carries out the ancient Bxh7+ sacrifice against Sr. Sivilla:
Second place finisher and new Barcelona Champion Dr. Puig also defeated Sr. Sivilla via the stroke Bxh7+.
Here a final and rather drastic example of the same theme.
In a subsequent entry we will present a further selection of games from this event, including some of a rather more substantial nature.
