GM Jon Ludvig Hammer shows you one of the most spectacular games he has ever played — and this game has it all. Hammer faces Veselin Topalov, and the Norwegian sacrifices a piece for a furious queenside attack. The fireworks continue all game as Topalov first shows his defensive prowess and then his endgame technique. The tragedy? Hammer makes a terrible blunder on his last move that turns what would have been a fighting draw into an instant loss.
