Efim Bogoljubov vs Alexander Alekhine
"The Triple Queen Sacrifice"
Bogoljubov – Alekhine (Hastings) was called the greatest game of chess ever played by Irving Chernev : "Alekhine's subtle strategy involves manoeuvres which encompass the entire chessboard as a battlefield. There are exciting plots and counterplots. There are fascinating combinations and brilliant sacrifices of Queens and Rooks. There are two remarkable promotions of Pawns and a third in the offing, before White decides to capitulate."
