Greatest queen sacrifice of 2020

DANIIL DUBOV vs SERGEY KARJAKIN – Russian Championship Superfinal (round 11), 2020

Today we will cover one of the best games of 2020 that features a brillian queen sacrifice.

We present you the game between Dubov and Karjakin played at the Russian Championship Superfinal in 2020.

The opening is the Italian Game: Classical Variation.

In this game, Karjakin plays a seemingly good move 15.a4…but from that moment Dubov’s attacking festival begins with the bishop pair, a passed pawn on d6 and a spectacular queen sacrifice.

After the queen sac, the position is not totally lost for black but at a practical level, Karjakin is not able to find the best moves and Dubov creates a mating net.

We believe this game features the greatest queen sacrifice of 2020!
