    Legall's Sacrifice 101

    The sacrifice and checkmate created by Legall has stunned and amazed chess players for over two hundred years. By studying how this Queen sacrifice and minor piece checkmate work, the chess student will improve his or her opening play, tactics, and imagination. We will begin our course with the earliest (and most common) examples of Legall's mate. Once we have mastered the basic mechanism, we will move forward to the more abstract and complex cases featuring the games of Masters and even World Champions!
