This is a remarkable game by Nicolas Rossolimo (who the Rossolimo Variation is named after). He sacrifices his queen with a brilliant 18th move, and attacks his opponent's kingside for the rest of the game. Thanks to his two hard-working bishops, on his 29th move, he crashes through with a neat combination, and his opponent is forced to resign.

Many people described Rossolimo as an "artist of chess". See if you agree.
