Fun in the park

A friend of mine once played an outdoor game in a public park with a fellow chess mate. Onlookers were especially intrigued with White’s attacking game. What many didn’t realise was that both players had memorised one of the most amazing sacrificial games ever played – the Immortal Game of 1851 with White checkmating on the 23rd move. The two pranksters could only smile to themselves when they finished, shook hands and walked away to appreciative applause.
