  Sneaky: This is the earliest game that chessgames.com has concerning this most interesting theoretical queen-sacrifice.

This is all well-explored theory. There are 61 games at this site where Black gives up his queen in this manner! Opening Explorer

Dec-04-04  who: Actually, the queen sacrifice was first introduced by Bronstein. The game isn't on this site.
Dec-04-04  narwhal: A particularly aggressive example of this sequence can be found in this little gem: L S Hwang vs Jong Wah Wong, 2003
Dec-29-14  Conrad93: According to the engines black had a crushing position until Gligoric blundered with 30...h4?.

The move he missed was 30...Rdd2! 31. Nd1 (forced) Rg2 32. Qxd4 Nc6 (defending d8 and allowing the bishop on g7 to attack b2)

Now, after something like 33. Qb6 Rxb2+ 34. Nxb2 Rxb2+ 35. Ka1 white can win a piece with 35...Rf2+

And he has two pieces and two pawns to white's single queen.

Dec-29-14  Conrad93: Sorry, I meant 30...b4, not 30...h4.
Aug-23-16  offramp: I can't believe White won this.
