This game is yet another fantastic effort by the great Mikhail Tal. On his 11th move, he sacrifices a knight, apparently for no reason. However, after whipping up an attack on Szukzszta's king out of nowhere, Tal throws in a couple of neat sacrifices. Just when it looks as if he will not be able to continue it, he shows the reason for his knight sac. It cleared the way for his queenside rook, which knocks down his opponent's last defenses.
