Dodd's Favourite Magical Miniatures
Compiled by Dodd
--*--

I am putting this collection together for the kids I am teaching chess. Everyone likes miniatures, and they are great at teaching opening principles (good for me too.) So hopefully I'll find some good examples here for the chess kids, and hopefully they will learn some crafty ideas to try out over the board.

100s of years old, and the opening is still ahead of its time!
Greco vs NN, 1620 
(C31) King's Gambit Declined, Falkbeer Counter Gambit, 10 moves, 1-0

Don't be greedy - check you are safe before snatching pieces.
Greco vs NN, 1620 
(C37) King's Gambit Accepted, 14 moves, 1-0

Best game ever played?
Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, 1858  
(C41) Philidor Defense, 17 moves, 1-0

Anderssen vs M Lange, 1859 
(C61) Ruy Lopez, Bird's Defense, 19 moves, 0-1

Should have been called FUNNIEST magical minature!
Lindemann vs Echtermeyer, 1893  
(B01) Scandinavian, 3 moves, 0-1
