This is one of Rashid Nezhmetdinov's most brilliant games. Here's a little information (from Wikipedia) about him:

Rashid Gibiatovich Nezhmetdinov (Russian: Рашид Гибятович Нежметдинов; Tatar Cyrillic: Рәшит Һибәт улы Нәҗметдинов, Latin: Räşit Hibät ulı Näcmetdinov, [ræˈʃit næʑmetˈdinəf]; December 15, 1912–June 3, 1974) was an eminent Soviet chess player, chess writer, and Checkers player.

Anyway, in the game, Nezhmetdinov unleashes one of the most famous chess combinations of all. See if you can figure out his incredible 24th move:
