As mentioned in an earlier post The Immortal Game was played in London 170 years ago – The venue was Simpson’s in the Strand, a few hundred yards from Trafalgar Square. The players were Adolf Anderssen and Lionel Kieseritzky and the game has been voted as the best chess game played in the past 1400 years!

Please just enjoy the moves and notice that having many more pieces on the board in no way guarantees victory

 White:  Anderssen, Adolf       Black:  Kieseritzky, Lionel
