Indian IM Ratnakaran Sacrifices His Queen On Move 8

In this video I am analyzing a newly played game where Indian IM Kantholi Ratnakaran sacrifices his queen on move 8 and prevails over opponent’s queen with minor pieces! In English opening just on move 8 Black makes a novelty and raises a huge interest with his game by a queen sacrifice! This is like a reminiscence of Murali Karthikeyan’s game where again a very early queen sacrifice was seen! In the end of the video as usual you can solve the daily puzzle!
