Here's a game I played recently that I quite enjoyed. Nothing spectacular happens; it's just chess. The players maneuvered for a while, and gradually I got an advantage. A temporary Pawn sacrifice helped turn things even more in my favor, and I finished off by transposing to a won King-and-Pawn endgame that I recognized from working my way through Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual a few years ago. It was one of my best games, and quite a pleasure to play.
That was fun to annotate, too, but I really need to do some work on some of my losses now.
