Published in Chess Puzzles

Very rarely do you see a master of Przepiorka’s strength lose the White side of a Queen’s Gambit in 14 moves, but it happened back in 1928 against Cheron: 1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 dxc4 5.a4 Bf5 6.Ne5 e6 7.f3 Bb4 8.e4 Bxe4 9.fxe4 Nxe4 10.Qf3 Qxd4 11.Qxf7+ Kd8 12.Qxg7 See Diagram

The game continued: 13…Bxc3+ 13.bxc3 Qf2+ 14.Kd1 Nxc3#
