Miniature of the Month - February 2013

If I am trying to hack my opponent, then a move like Nce4 is usually a signpost on the road to success. It normally happens when the kings knight is already on g5, although it sometimes occurs in the reverse order (Ne4 followed by Nfg5). Courtesy of Chess Today comes an example of such an attack, with both knights charging the kingside, before the queen and bishops finishing the job.
