The game from our poster

On our 11×17″ poster is the following game between “Rudolf Rocker v Emma Goldman, November 5, 1899, London”.

Those two did meet in November 1899, but were not known to have played chess. This game is actually between myself and another club member and was their second of two games played with handicapped time controls (white rapid, black blitz) on International Tabletop Day, April 5, 2014.

This game was actually played beyond move 23, but I got a bit confused and then lazy while going through the record at that point and I figured this was long enough for the poster. A fine place to resign, though 15. Qxa1+ would been time enough as well.
