Continuing our theme week, we have David Bronstein upending Viktor Korchnoi way back in 1962.


Solution:

It’s as through a queen winning as you can get—in every variation: 1.Rxh6+ Kf7 [1...gxh6 2.Qg8+ Kf6 3.Qf8+; 1...Kxh6 2.Qh8+ Kg6 3.Qh5+ Kf6 4.g5+] 2.Qc7+ Kg8 3.Qc8+ Qf8 [3...Kf7 4.Qe6+ Kf8 5.Rh8#]4.Rh8+ Kxh8 5.Qxf8+ and wins.
