Queen Sacrifice Gave Birth To One Of The Best Checkmates Ever

In this video I am analyzing a little known chess miniature played by American chess player George H Derrickson. Just from the opening Black sacrifices a piece which allows him to open up the h-file and get nice attacking chances. Soon Derrickson also sacrifices his queen and once White fails to defend accurately Black announces an unearthly checkmate! In the end of the video as usual you can solve the daily puzzle!
