[video] The World’s Most Famous Chess Combinations #5: Adams v. Torre
In New Orleans Adams played what is probably the most beautiful overloading combination in the history of chess.
Poor Torre was desperately trying to keep his pieces together but in the end could not manage against the well poised violence of white’s heavy pieces.
Some people think that the game was a sham, because of it’s beauty.
What do you think?

Anyway, check out the video, it’s well worth it!
