This is a truly remarkable game. It starts off normally until Nezhmetdinov sacrifices his queen on the 12th(!) move for just two pieces. He then proceeds to build up an attack that his opponent is helpless to prevent. Eventually, Nezhmetdinov crashes through with a neat combination and Chernikov has no choice but to resign.
