  whiteshark: In one of his books, Euwe tells what happened when in 1919, the chess editor of a local paper published a game <Capablanca - Olland> from the Hastings tournament. It was a Queen's Gambit, and Capablanca won quickly with a nice exchange sacrifice Rc1xc6.

The problem was that the editor had White's second move as <e2-e4> (instead of c2-c4). But apart from 4.c4xd5 which, said the editor, was a mistake for <4.e4xd5>, everything tallied. Of course with that pawn still on c2, <10.Ra1-c1> was a truly mysterious rook move, but the real problem was that sac;


How to deal with this? The editor was not a man easily daunted. He wrote: <'Strictly speaking this move is illegal, but apart from this minor blemish: <a beautiful game!'>>
