Chess.com Isle of Man International Major and Minor Tournaments

I have taken the liberty of assuming that the Major and Minor Tournaments in the Isle of Man might be worthy of a separate thread.

Thank you David. Good luck in your event (I thought you were arbiting, not playing!).

I was going to suggest that the sacrifice on h7 was a bit suspect, but isn't h4 rather useful?

(edit) maybe .. Rh8 is a defence.

Instead of the h7 sacrifice perhaps Rad1 to threaten the Bxh7 cheapo in a move or two (/edit)
