Daníil Dúbov (Moscow, 1996) is a very suitable author for an immortal work, like the one presented in this video. Perhaps his mind is too restless: he is interested in many topics that have nothing to do with chess; I still live in Russia after speaking out publicly on several occasions against the aggression against Ukraine– to be world champion, but he undoubtedly has one of the greatest talents produced in the last three decades. Additionally, his courage and creativity are well above average for elite players.

What he does in this case is enrich a well-known motif – that of the reel – with great brilliance (by sacrificing his queen) and depth, so that when the combination appears to have ended without victory , the real winning element appears, very elegant.
