The Russian Beauty! Dmitry Andreikin’s Greatest Queen Sacrifice

In this blitz game Russian GM Dmitry Andreikin goes for a brilliant queen sacrifice against his compatriot GM Peter Svidler which allows him to unleash a king hunt leading to a checkmate!
Svidler himself was impressed as well, and later tweeted about it:
“Judging by the amount of love my moment of admiration for Dmitry’s combination is getting, I should be getting mated, spectacularly, in the center of the board more often.
Seriously though – that final position is fabulous, have a look if you haven’t yet”.
