  An Englishman: Good Evening: This Henry Hosmer fellow was completely unknown to me until now, but he seems to have been one of America's strongest players in the 19th Century, with an estimated Elo of 2504. Here, his odd little pawn sacrifice on move 27 is enough to topple one of the world's best.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: <HeHateMe>, thank you for the kind words. The 19th Century is a good source for the unusual in general; I also dig up the unexplored by exploring the less explored openings in the Opening Explorer.
