This game is brilliant and clean at the same time. Ostapenko, a little-known player, complicates things early on with a knight sacrifice on the 13th move. He then is given a chance to take his opponent's rook, but instead, Ostapenko decides to begin an attack. He then proceeds to sacrifice both his rooks and launches an attack with just his queen and two bishops. After the ensuing king-hunt, a simple won endgame arises, and his opponent is forced to concede.

Oh, and don't forget that today is Memorial Day!
