Put away your calculators today - GM Kaidanov has no use for them. Adding up the points of each army will only distort the truth and obscure the magnificence of this queen sacrifice by GM Boris Gulko. It almost seems as if it is a race to give away pieces as both sides struggle for activity over material. The final tactical sequence is worthy of high praise, and ironically White's "extra" queen only gets in his way. Watch and see the improbable finish for yourself.
