  OlimpBase: The historical, very first Olympic victory!
Jun-16-07  Dr. Siggy: <OlimpBase> ... and (as far as I know) the first game on record where Yates employed his own very effective recipe against the Scheveninguen Variation of the Sicilian Defense: 11.Qe1! - after which the Queen is to join in the attack at g3.

  GrahamClayton: 21. f6 g6 does nothing, but the sacrifice with 21. ♗xg7! makes f6 a winning move.
