Let me present to you one of my favorite games played by WGM Natalia Pogonina against FM Dmitry Biryukov.

Natalia (currently #14 female player in the world rated 2501 FIDE) delivered an unexpected attack on the kingside followed by a few remarkable sacrifices and ended the game in her favor in just 22 moves! A must-see for tactics and attacking chess lovers.

Hint: there are lots of interesting variations, so don't forget to press "Move List" to see them all!
