This game was found in the book 107 Great Chess Battles by the well known Grandmaster Alexander Alekhine. After a classical style response to the Sililian Defense, Dragon Variation with 6 Be2, Hasenfuss makes an intersting pawn push with 8 g4 that leads to a kingside pawn storm. Subtle mistakes by Black in his kingside defense allows a brutal combination where White smothers the king.
