  sneaky pete: A hitherto unobserved classic. I've seen roughly the same combination recently on this site in a slightly different similar position, but of course can't remember the name of the game (I like it like that).

  Ziggurat: A similar game:

Adolf Anderssen vs Max Lange, 1859

  YoungEd: Anderssen vs. Dufresne 1851 is exactly the same through the first 13 moves, when Anderssen resigned.

  perfidious: <zed: What does "FRG theme" mean? >

Thematic correspondence event held in West Germany.

  zanzibar: Thanks <perf>, you're certainly right.

I was somehow stuck trying to connect FRG with some obscure opening name.

I wonder exactly what the "theme" really was?

(Maybe the Bird's variation of the Spanish?)
