Wilhelm Steinitz Vs Augustus Mongredien, 1862: Steinitz opens with e4, answered by Mongredien’s Scandinavian Defense. Mongredien plays standard opening moves however he commits a serious inaccuracy with 11. …Nd5?! and 12. …exd5?! — closing his own bishop’s a8-h1 diagonal. Steinitz immediately lifts his rook with 13. Rf3 and sacrifices it with 16. Rxh7! — demolishing the pawn cover in front of black’s king with devastating effect. Steinitz plays one last finesse in his attack, 25. Bg5! to finish the game.
