  Chessical: An attractive Q sacrifice by the Scandinavian master Sjoberg against the mighty Oldrich Duras.

<23...Bxf3?> is too casual; with 23...Re8 Duras would have had no particular problems.

<24.Rxd6!!> sacrificng the Q and a pawn for two Rooks, and an enduring inititive.

<33.f4+!> and <34.h4!> lure Duras' K to its doom.

After <37.g3+!> Kg4 38.Bd1+ Kh3 39.Re2 there is nothing to do but resign.
