Zukertort Checkmates His Opponent In An Unprecedented Way

In this video I am analyzing a famous chess game played by Polish-German chess master Johannes Zukertort! Against King’s gambit Zukertort organizes a strong attack and by using opponent’s mistakes gains advantage! The pinnacle of beauty becomes Zukertort’s first queen sacrifice (which was rejected), but finally he forces his opponent to accept the sacrifice and announces a checkmate with 2 knights! A brilliant game common to Romantic Era of Chess!
