Wesley So Goes For A Shocking Queen Sacrifice On Move 12

In this video I am analyzing a blitz game played between American GM Wesley So and Russian GM Sergey Karjakin! In English opening on move 12 Wesley So goes for a very bold queen sacrifice thus as a compensation getting only 2 bishops and 2 pawns! In a time pressure playing that position turns out to be easier for White and Karjakin starts burning time. Finally when less than 10 seconds remained on Karjakin’s clock he makes a blunder and quickly loses! Another brilliant example how two minor pieces can prevail over the queen! In the end of the video as usual you can solve the daily puzzle!
