If there is such a thing as surrealism in chess, the game below has it. The player of the White pieces is Weaver Warren Adams (1901-1963), former US Open Champion and author of the book "White to Play and Win". Here, he essays the Vienna Game, which is the foundation of his premise. Despite the early loss of the exchange, he has more than enough compensation in his strong attack against the enemy King. White lost in a bizarre way after missing the winning combination 28.Re8+ Rxe8, 29.Qxe8+ Kh7, 30.dxc5. This game proves that theoretical knowledge goes out the window when the clock ticks dangerously. Tension and nerve are also deciding factors. (If anyone happens to know the place and date of this game, comments are welcome)
