Grand Prix for Depressnyak

Some people believe that blitz is the true test of talent. If that is the case, then the following game proves that Grischuk is very talented. First he comes up with a positional piece sacrifice and then he finds a very unique mating pattern. This was one of these jaw-dropping moments. WOW! Imagine how MVL must have felt after this hit.

After the match someone mentioned that this was all known up to 13. Bxe7. If this is true, it could have been preparation, because Grischuk simply plays like an engine from there. The whole line is a forced draw if black finds 17…Rd7, which also suits his freeroll-style.
