Another Brilliant Underpromotion To A Knight

In this video I am analyzing a brilliant attacking game played by Hungarian chess master Karoly Sterk vs legendary American chess player Frank Marshall. Marshall who was U.S. Chess Champion from 1909 to 1936, and one of the world’s strongest chess players in the early part of the 20th century plays this game in a very disorganized way and loses quickly once he faces White’s ferocious attack! White concludes his attack with a brilliant queen sacrifice, which allows him to push forward his pawn, then promotes it to a knight and checkmates with a rook! In the end of the video as usual you can solve the daily puzzle!
