The Dark Knight Returns

In this video I am analyzing a famous game played by Serbian and Yugoslav chess Grandmaster Svetozar Gligoric vs IM Zvonimir Mestrovic! In the opening White places his queen on an awkward h5-square and faces serious problems! While White queen was out of the game Gligoric activates his queen and gets a winning position! In the end Gligoric promotes his pawn to a knight, forks the royal family and forces his opponent to resign! In the end of the video as usual you can solve the daily puzzle!
