Know Your Openings And Don’t Lose Like Siegbert Tarrasch

In this video I am analyzing a game where Russian-German chess player Efim Bogolyubov destroys Alekhine defense which was terribly played by Siegbert Tarrasch! By going for a pawn sacrifice Bogolyubov is first demoralizing Black’s kingside after which launches an attack with a final king hunt! Castling queen-side with a check is something which can be seen rarely in chess!
