Korchnoi’s Opponent Was Definitely Not Expecting That Brilliant Move

Here is a brilliant chess game played by Soviet GM Viktor Korchnoi vs Swiss chess player Werner Hug, where Korchnoi makes use of his opponent’s mistakes and by penetrating opponent’s second rank with his queen creates sharp tactical threats. In the end Korchnoi sacrifices his queen, which was overlooked by his opponent, and forces him to resign in view of an imminent fork! The upcoming fork for the royal family gives White an extra piece! In the end of the video as usual you can solve the daily puzzle!
