Ever since the great death of my old blog, I’ve given up doing the chess puzzles. In fact, it’s been a several months since playing any tournament chess, just because of other stuff going on.
I don’t plan on resurrecting the puzzles right now, but still will throw an occasional position for your consideration. In the game, I was White and played the exchange sacrifice* 1. Rxe8. Play continued 1. … Rxe8 2. Nxd6 Rd8 (Qxd6 leaves me up a Pawn–I think–after 3. Bf4 Be5 4. Nxe5 Rxe5 5. d4. Although Black could very well win the b2 Pawn back, I’d still like White’s position.) But there are many possibilities for Black.
Does White get enough compensation after Rxe8? (I think it’s enough for equality, but not an advantage.)
