Rashid Nezhmedtinov 1 - 0 Oleg Chernikov (Chigorin Team Cup, Rostov on Don 1962) The Soviet player, Rashid Nezhmetdinov (1912-74), was one of the fiercest attacking players in the history of the game. He never gained the grandmaster title, partly through not being allowed to travel outside the Soviet Union until he was in his forties. Nevertheless he was highly respected by many of the strongest players of his time, including Mikhail Tal against whom he had a 3-1 plus score and who said of him: "His games reveal the beauty of chess and make you love in chess not so much the points and high placings, but the wonderful harmony and elegance of this particular world." This famous game features an extraordinary queen sacrifice on move 12 for the initiative and an attack. Black was unable to find a defence. Who knows if there is one?} 1. e4 c5 2.
