Accepting a piece sacrifice can lead to complicated positions that require a sequence of accurate moves from the defending side, which sometimes is even challenging for the top players. We will look at two games from the recent FIDE World Cup that just ended a few days ago.

The first game is Tomashevsky vs. Aronian which ended in a draw after Aronian took the extra piece, but failed to find the winning sequence to draw and leave the tournament. The second game is Kamsky vs. Mamedyarov, where Kamsky sacrificed the piece and won the game after inaccurate response from Mamedyarov.

Instead of 24. ... gxf5?, black has a better way to continue ...

In the second game, white's position wasn't so interesting till now and positionally it was getting worse, but Kamsky found a way to take initiative ...

23. ... Kg7? was inaccurate, instead black should have played Qb6 or Qc6 to stop the e pawn from advancing.

    Thanks, everyone who posted the same solution to help me out! :)

    I indeed missed that after giving check, there are two attackers on the rook. Nice subtlety bringing the knight in play, I'd never spot it in a million years.

    After Re6? White can play Nf4 winning rook as g pawn is pinned

    @hotwax in you analysis, Re6?! loses immediately, in view of ...Nf4+!, making use of the pin to fork the king and knight.

    Hotwaxafter re6 you have the saving move 30..Nf4!+ and then picks up the rook.

    In the line you give for Aronian's game, is't the resulting position still completely losing?
