Jun-25-13  optimal play: <<<THE ADELAIDE CHESS CONGRESS.>

Considerable interest was manifested in the last round, which was played at the Town Hall Exchange-room on Friday. The game between Messrs. Hall and Witton was the first completed. The South Australian adopted the favourite Ruy Lopez opening. Mr. Witton replied gamely, but on the twenty-fourth move had to resign after two hours three minutes' play, of which Mr. Hall only took forty-five minutes.>
