Forming ranks

 Finding brilliancies by Rashid Nezhmetdinov isn't a particularly hard task, as he played a vast number of them. However some stand out for other reasons, including the one below. After 15 moves White has most of his attacking force lined up across the third rank, which is normally not that threatening. But the jump of the knight to d5 sets the attack in motion, and it finishes with a nice set of scrifices.
