STEFAN LEVITSKY vs FRANK JAMES MARSHALL – 18th DSB Kongress, 1912
This is another classic that every chess fan should know by heart.
We talk about the match between Levitsky and Marshall played at Breslau in 1912.
This game features the Sicilian Defense, Marshall Gambit (exactly).
The game is also known as “The Gold Coin Game” (and also “The American Beauty”), because legend told that after Marshall’s spectacular last move (Qg3!!!) Levitsky resigned, and there was a toss of gold coins on the board by enthusiastic spectators. This is however still a legend to be confirmed but it only enhances the legend of this game!
