A New Years hack

Chesswise my year got of to a surprisingly good start. I managed a full 7 rounds of Street Chess on the weekend, which in itself is a rarity for me (I usually only play enough rounds to avoid anyone having a bye). Even better, I scored enough points to finish second, behind perennial winner FM Endre Ambrus.
Along the way I managed to catch Sunny Yoon unprepared for the Sorensen Gambit, a line I play more out of habit than affection. Sunny probably should have castled queenside when he had the chance (or grabbed my b pawn) but once I sacrificed on c6 the end was nigh.
