Nov-23-20  Honey Blend: The only saving move was 21. ♔g1, where after 21. ... ♖e1+ 22. ♕xe1 ♘xe1 23. ♖xe1 white's KR is still trapped in the corner and has weak queenside pawns. Black looks like he can easily win this ♖♖ vs ♕ ending.

  Check It Out: It is widely thought that Frank Parr was visited by aliens who imbued him with a singular chess talent, specifically to be released and encapsulated in this game: F Parr vs G Wheatcroft, 1938

  schnarre: ...A lot of activity on the C-file in this game. Once Black broke through, then it was curtains for White, with 23...Nh3# adding insult to injury.
Nov-23-20  Brenin: Many thanks, <Check It Out>, for reminding me of Frank Parr's masterpiece against Wheatcroft. For anyone needing relief from pandemic-induced boredom or depression, I recommend playing through this short but amazing game.

  mjmorri: 13. Nd4, allowing the Black Knight to remain on e5, seems to be the start of White's troubles. Black's minor pieces quickly occupy better squares than their White counterparts.
