Taking a break from Tarrasch this evening, I decided to start working through Steve Giddin's 50 Essential Chess Lessons. This is billed as a modern version of Chernev's Most Instructive Games of Chess Ever Played

This first game features opposite side castling with pawn storms attempting to attack the opposing King. Averbakh sacrifices material to open up the position around Black's King and Black has to give the material plus more back.
