BDK's recent post about the Soller Gambit inspired me to rummage through the Polly archives and pull up this "beauty" from 1979. The game is comical in itself, but what makes it funnier is where and when it was played. This game was played at the 1979 Empire City Open (Under 1600 Section) in round three. So what? We were playing on board 1 with the two of us both being 2-0 with the winner of this game having excellent chances at winning the section.
In round 4 I had a 57 move draw. I don't recall whether my opponent was also 3-0, and we tied for first or not. I guess the prize money wasn't anything special because think I would have remembered whether or not I won the tournament. Pretty wacky, huh?
