This Is Insane! Queen Sacrifice On Move 5

Queen sacrifice in the opening is something which can be seen rarely! But as said magic happens, and this game is truly magical. Canadian chess Grandmaster Kevin Spraggett sacrifices his queen as early as on move 5 using the vulnerability of black king and organizes a powerful attack which is hard to describe with words! A great game which I strongly recommend to watch!
