The Best Combination Of The 20th Century?

In this video I am covering the famous Adams vs. Torre game.
Adams – Torre, New Orleans 1920, is a famous chess game allegedly played between the American chess amateur Edwin Ziegler Adams (1885-1944) and the Mexican champion Carlos Torre Repetto (1905-1978) in 1920 in New Orleans.
Despite the controversial articles written about this encounter, the game serves as a classical example of a deflection and back rank weakness exploitation.
