Random Game #5 - Ward vs. Teichmann - London 1900

The Random Game feature at is a handy way to broaden your chess education. You never know what's going to pop up. You may see a famous classic, or maybe a subtle modernity, or maybe a true obscurity. You might even find a diamond in the rough that nobody else has spotted. This game took place in London in 1900 and pitted a virtually unknown William Ward against the successful Richard Teichmann. The latter defeated the likes of Schlechter, Nimzowitsch, and Rubinstein. The opening that day was a Semi-Slav Defense (in the Queen's Gambit Declined). You can also try the random game idea yourself here.
