Here's a remarkable game that I came across recently. The players are largely unknown, and Karmov, playing black, unleashes a neat combination in the opening that leaves his queen hanging for several moves.

Musaiev puts up a resourceful defense, but eventually is overcome by the complications and makes a few errors, which allows Karmov to build up his advantage and eventually grind out a victory.
