  An Englishman: Good Evening: Check out this one, folks! The earliest Black win in the Ruy Classical is a pretty wild game. Horwitz starts out badly--in fact, he pretty much loses the game by trying to treat this as an Evans Gambit--but after move 20, he comes with one resource after another to stay alive. But Kieseritcky is up to the challenge, sacrificing some of his advantage to get his passed pawns rolling. The finish is curious--the White King and both of his Rooks are on the eighth rank! Very enjoyable and highly recommended.
