The Peruvian Immortal

In this video I am covering the famous immortal game known as “The Peruvian Immortal”. The Peruvian Immortal is the name given to a spectacular chess game played by the Peruvian master (later grandmaster) Esteban Canal against an unknown amateur in a simultaneous exhibition he gave at Budapest in 1934. In just 14 moves, Canal sacrificed both his rooks and his queen, finishing the game with Boden’s mate.
