It isn't easy to figure out who is attacking and who is defending! White's king is castled, yet if Black wins the battle for the g3-square, there are possible mating attacks. Black's king is not under any immediate threat but cannot run for cover and will remain exposed. Materially, white is down a piece, and Black has time to develop with ...Ne7, Black is sure to prevail. White invests even more material in an effort to expose the black king.
At this point Spielmann unleashed a deadly sacrifice.
Please read the whole game with annonations.
And Black resigned.
One of the greatest sacrifices. See how Spielmann calculated his moves (just like a computer). Brilliant masterpiece.
