BCC Champ Rd. 1: Williams-Cherniack 0-1

I was sitting next to this board and saw all the craziness firsthand. The game was a French Tarrasch with the currently trendy 3...Be7. Alex allowed Chris to offer a well-known pawn sac by playing 8...Qb6 (a perfectly reasonable line) rather than the more recently popular moves 8...g5 or 8...a5. From there the game turned into a sac-fest with pieces flying everywhere.
