Search mask: Position – Sacrifice


A sacrifice is a sequence of moves in which one side gives up material and then gains an advantage. The ChessBase sacrifice search does a look-ahead in all tactical situations and for this reason takes somewhat longer than the other searches. The algorithms were written by Dr. Christian Donninger, the author of Nimzo.
