    What has been the most recent occurrence of a rated game being played between two players surnamed ‘White’ and ‘Black’ in whatever language, where ‘White’ plays White and ‘Black’ plays Black? Anyone who beats my record ( 10:00 Feb 12 2015 ) is eligible. I’ll select a game of the person who gives me the most recent game from the eligible submissions. The deadline is 7:00 EST on August 10, 2015.

    Hi,

    This Weiss - Schwarz game from the above posted selection looks almost
    too good to be real. Play it out.

    I'd say it was a put-up job, going for a guaranteed draw, except that it was played in 1883. In those days they were also playing the symmetrical version of the Four Knights and stuff like that, so it's probably genuine.
  6. 04 Aug '15 15:46
    I'm sure it's genuine, the header probably proves that.

    Mr. White is White and Mr. Black is Black and this the final position.
