Notes on chess in Chicago.
An immortal game that every player should know. It is at http://bit.ly/vNngN8 Chernev and Reinfeld, in "The Fireside Book of Chess," featured the game in a chapter entitled "The Perfect Game" and said that it might be the greatest attacking game of all time. Parr had the key position embroidered on a tapestry that he hung on his wall.1.Rh5!!(a) 1...Qxd7 2.Ng5+ Kh8 3.Rxh6#(b) 1...gxh5 2.Qf5#(c) 1...Qa5 2.Rxh6+! Bh6 3.Ng5#
I'd never heard that story before. 1.Rh5!! is incredibly beautiful, but the tapestry may have been overkill.
