Here’s one of the most beautiful games in chess history played in 1844 between Alexander Hoffman (white) & Alexander Petrov (black). This game from the romantic era of chess is known as Petrov’s Immortal & features one of the greatest queen sacrifice ever & probably the best castling move of all time. This game also features some interesting moves, tactics, ideas, strategies, tricks & traps. Alexander Dimitrovich Petrov, the inventor of Petrov’s Defense, and author of one of the first Russian chess manuals (1824), was the outstanding Russian player of his day. He gained this supremacy in his teens, and held the top position for more than fifty years! This game illustrates the finest example of castling in chess, and may be used to help beginners study a master game while learning about the rules for castling, sacrificing material for the attack, and constructing a mating net. The opening employs the very unusual Ghulam Kassim Variation of the Giuoco Piano. I also have an interesting chess puzzle at the end of this video, let’s see if you can find the mate in 2 moves.
