A Little Known But A Great Queen Sacrifice By Gawain Jones

In this video I am analyzing a famous chess game played by English GM Gawain Jones where he goes for a queen sacrifice in King’s Indian Defense! First Jones is choosing a slightly offbeat line and then by inviting his opponent to win a pawn goes for a queen sacrifice! His opponent Vietnamese IM Anh Khoi Nguyen fails to show a decent resistance and concedes quickly! Another brilliant example of how two minor pieces can prevail over a queen! In the end of the video as usual you can solve the daily puzzle!
