The World Champion Called This Game “A Gem of Combinative Art”

In this chess video I am analyzing a game played between two little chess players in 1930 in Frankfurt. Luckily the game caught the eye of Alexander Alekhine and the game became famous. Here is how… In 1930 in the Deutsche Schachzeitung Alexander Alekhine came across the game played between F Hermann and Hugo Hussong. This is not the sort of game you would expect the World Champion to look at. However he not only noticed it, he even analysed it thoroughly and even devoted a special article to it, under the heading “A Gem of Combinative Art”.
