  SwitchingQuylthulg: Yep, a beautiful game by Bereziuk. It's not often you see two knights sacrificed on the same empty square! The game was all the more 'Morphy' because, just like the American star, Bereziuk was quite young when he played it. Anyone know what happened to him, did he just abandon chess? Only one game by him in Chessgames database...

  ChessCoachClark: This game was cited as Diagram #374 on pages 249-250 of Checkmate! by Koltanowski and Finkelstein (c)1978, but the players' names were given as Berezyok and Ijnin.

You will also see this game and 402 others for Berezjuk, Sergej at the "CT" webpage.

The "365" webpage does not have this game, but does feature 669 games for Berezjuk, Sergej as well.

In both places, he has been actively playing until now.

Koltanowski and Finkelstein devote a fair bit of space and four stages of exercises for a chess student based on this game. Check it out!
