Averbakh - Sarvarov, USSR chT 1959

I was taking a break from Tarrasch tonight, and decided to start working through Steve Giddins's game collections. 50 Essential Chess Lessons is a styled as a modern version of Chernev's Most Instructive Games of Chess Ever Played.

This first game features opposite castling, followed up with pawn storms at the Kings. Averbakh sacrifices material to break open black's position, and black has to give it back plus interest in fighting off a deadly attack.
