I have come across many good chess related videos and articles online. But this is the first time I am posting one because this absolutely blew my mind!

GM Judit Polgar is one of my favourite players ever. Just like Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov, she knows how to initiate an overwhelming attack and make her opponents grasp at straws before they drown in tidal waves of checks and inevitable doom. Here is one of her mind-blowing games played during the Bled Olympiad 2002. She just annihilates her opponent with an attack from which there is no recovery.

The following video is from a YouTube channel where the content is very useful for beginner/intermediate level chess players.

Here's the game Judit Polgar vs Shakhriyar Mamedyarov (Bled Olympiad, 29 Oct 2002):

 

 

I find this game very instructive on how to attack; or rather when to attack. This game reminds me of an article titled If The Board Says ATTACK, Then ATTACK! written by IM Jeremy Silman, which is also very instructive for beginners and intermediate players.

Learn from the masters; and instead of getting frustrated: get better.
