Here is a famous chess miniature played by Soviet GM David Bronstein vs Soviet GM Alexander Kotov where Bronsein surprises his opponent by sacrificing his queen on move 21 thus forcing him to resign! It all started from an offbeat line in Caro-Kann defense, where Bronstein gets a space advantage and attacking position! In a critical moment Kotov fails to spot White’s winning resource and once he steps into the combination, resigns! In the end of the video as usual you can solve the daily puzzle!
