Filipino Grandaster Finds A Brilliant “Suffocation Mating” Resource

In this video I am analyzing a brilliant chess game played by Filipino Grandmaster Rogelio Antonio vs Vietnamese Grandmaster Thien Hai Dao! From the opening, Sicilian Moscow variation, White gets a slightly preferable position with nice attacking chances! In return Black set a very solid position, but once he weakens the long diagonal and makes a mistake by playing 18… Bg7 steppes into a brilliant combination! GM Joey instantly uses his chance and by using the vulnerability of Black queen and the “Suffocation mating” pattern sacrifices his queen and forces his opponent to resign! This time I put the daily puzzle in the beginning of the video!
