  Benzol: This game won B H Wood the prize for the best played game in the British Correspondence championship. A good game for students of the Winawer variation of the French Defence.

  Benzol: <GrahamClayton> Thanks, that explains a lot. It would have been very strange for a correspondence player to have overlooked such a simple mate otherwise.
