Nunn’s Immortal

ALEXANDER BELIAVSKY vs JOHN NUNN- Hoogovens, round 2, 1985

Today we present you the game between Beliavsky and Nunn played in Hoogovens in 1985.

The opening is the King’s Indian Defense: Saemisch Variation. 

In this game, Beliavsky does not have any plan out of the opening and Nunn starts a ferocious attack on the kingside by playing 10.f5!

The attack is so strong that Black tears White apart by sacrificing a rook and keeping the initiative. Beliavsky has to resign on move 27 as White’s king has no defense and its pieces are stuck on the first ranks.

This is Nunn’s Immortal!
