Miniature of the Month - November 2012

Frank Marshall once remarked that he opened with 1.P-Q4 as he felt he could get better attacking positions as a result, and much later, Gary Kasparov apparently expressed a similar sentiment. For the Miniature if the Month for November 2012, I present an extreme example of this, combining the Queens Gambit Declined with the Greek Gift (Bxh7+). While the game was only a rapid game, White still finishes the game of in a clinical and instructive manner.
