A Queen Sacrifice

The following brilliant game was posted recently on Kevin Spraggett’s site but without it being replayable. As it’s a real gem, and one that isn’t well known (at least I hadn’t seen it before!), I thought it worth posting.

White’s 18.Rhf1! is surely one of the most beautiful moves ever played on a chess board, the point being the spectacular follow up of 19.Rxe6!.
