Cool chess puzzle for a swell Monday

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hello everyone,

Here is a nice puzzle to begin the week with. White has a nice attack going but how did he finish it off despite being material down? Think awhile before checking the answer in our pgnplayer below. The game was between Chasdan and Ussakowski, USSR, 1964.

    Guess more than calculation this kind of game needs nerve in a tournament. Shrug. Nice puzzle. Thanks again Chess Queen.
