  An Englishman: Good Evening: A spectular debut for the Panov-Botvinnik Attack! And from 1866, no less!

The game looks so modern, too. The first ten moves are still main line theory, and the thematic d4-d5 break makes its debut here as well.

I suppose Owen might feel a little miffed if he ever learned that his great innovation was named after a couple of guys who came along 70 years later, but he can console himself with the thought that his Owen Defense is now considered respectable.

  Calli: Doubt if this game is from 1866, although I don't see a modern duplicate in the DB.

  Phony Benoni: I too have to express skepticism about the date, and not just because of the opening. Why would the Rev. John Owen from the United Kingdom be playing in the USA postal championship? For that matter, was there anything resembling a USA postal championship in 1866?

If the date is 1966, there are at least a couple of possibilities. One is L Owen, (full name Louis B. Owen), a strong postal player from Michigan during the 1960s--1980s. There is also Brian E. Owens, who won the Golden Knights championship in 1965.

Where's Alex Dunne when you need him?

Owen vs. Robert L. Mapes, from 1984.
