The Scandinavian


I'm heading off to college tomorrow. Before I go, I would like to share this game with everyone.

It's a pretty wild game, featuring the great Wilhelm Steinitz. He opts to attack his opponent right out of the middlegame, and a rook sacrifice on his 16th move initiates a brilliant little sequence that culminates in mate.

A couple of pins play a key role in helping Steinitz trap his opponent's king. Enjoy!
