Jan-19-09  KingG: Incredibly modern opening considering it was played in 1854!
Jan-22-09  KingG: Ok, this was too good to be true, as expected. The game was in fact played in 1954, and it was a correspondence game.
Jan-22-09  ughaibu: An admirable correction, thanks.

  sachistu: Just wondering what your source was <KingG> for the year of this game? Still several places where this game is listed as 1854 (not that I necessarily agree with them, but have not been able to independently verify the year 1954). Thanks!
