Walter Browne Throws One Down

It’s high time I started posting more about chess, and as it happens I have just found a marvelous tool for displaying games in Web pages (it’s called PalView, and you can find it here).

Anyway, I was poking around online the other day and came across this outstandingly brilliant game by the great American grandmaster Walter Browne. When I was a teenager I used to come into New York with my friends to play in tournaments at the old McAlpin Hotel at Herald Square; Walter was always the one to watch. You could always tell where his board was by the crowd gathered round.

This is a beautiful game from one of those tournaments, way back in 1973. Enjoy.

    Thanks Malcolm, that was fun to play through. I see that Browne scored 5/9 at the just concluded US Championship swiss. I’ve watched him at a few tournaments–an entertaining, if nerve-wracking, experience.

    Glad you enjoyed it, Robert. I’ll move in our game ASAP; this is a busy and difficult time for me right now.
