Efim Korchmar vs Evsey Poliak

Ruy Lopez, Steinitz Variation

There have been an endless amount of impressive talents and players from Ukraine, however the Ukrainian Immortal Game features a few lesser known players. The game starts out with a dry and defensive Ruy Lopez with Korchmar playing the white pieces and Poliak playing the black pieces. Despite black’s defensive setup in the Steinitz variation of the Ruy Lopez, black can only keep white’s attack at bay for so long. White picks the perfect time to strike once Korchmar’s pieces are in prime position. The game comes to a swift and beautiful conclusion but only several imaginative and unique attacking moves. You are in for a treat with this game!
