The game is between Wilfred Brown and Robin Kneebone and was played in a match between Cornwall and Gloucestershire, in Exeter, United Kingdom. Unfortunately, that is all that I can tell you about the background of this particular game.

However, the game really needs no introduction. it speaks for itself. Ratings, titles, and whatever else don’t matter, it is just a very nice game to take a look at. I have to say, it is one of the most enjoyable games that I have browsed through, even though it is rather short and sweet.

The game is one which teaches many lessons, the first is to know the openings you play as well as you can. This is not only concerning the moves, but the themes also. Even more crucial, however, is technique and sense of danger. Black’s lets him down in this instance and White seizes the point with both hands.

Enjoy!
