We conclude our survey of weapons of chess destruction, with examples from the three most recent world champions. In each case we see them following the opening rules and then quickly demolishing the opponents position.  This happens even though these are modern games where the opponents should certainly have known better.

 

What this demonstrates is that even in modern chess it is possible to win quickly using sharp attacking lines in the early middlegames.

I hope you have enjoyed these examples, and can put the lessons to use in your own game.
