The Greatest Chess Move of All Time?

This has been called the "Greatest Move In All of Chess."

Given the trillions of moves that players have played over the millenniums, this is -- of course -- a bold statement. This is, however, a pretty sweet move.

Do you see it?

Legend has it that spectators were so enamored with Marshall's bold, winning move, they threw pieces of gold onto the chess board to pay homage to the brilliancy they just witnessed.

These lines echo my sentiments! "I love chess... perhaps a little too much. Unfortunately, I am not very good at it. Relatively, of course. My game is not top-notch, but my enthusiasm is. This webpage outlines some of my chess-related adventures.

Great blog!

Hey, I love the article. I have been writing about my chess class for some time also but I can not figure out how to insert a "chess game" like you did in this post. Could you explain me how you can do this? My blog is: http://mcmillan-chess-team.blogspot.com/
