Shortest Chess Game Ever? White Wins in 2 Moves, but How | Chess Anecdotes & Lessons for Players

Is this the shortest chess game you’ve ever seen? In this video, I share with you a short fun story/anecdote about a correspondence game played between James Franklin Campbell and Alan Ehrlich in 1990. Campbell was playing with the white pieces & Ehrlich was playing with the black pieces and they started with the modern defense chess opening. This was a long distance game & not a regular over the board game where both players sit at the Chessboard and play at the same time. Both players were using the postal method to make & communicate their moves to their opponent. In order to save some time & money for postage, black decided to make two moves at once. This is what white took advantage of & trapped the black bishop & rook. After which, Black resigned in only 2 moves & white won the game. This game teaches us an important lesson in chess. Whether you are playing as white or black, you need to consider your opponent’s moves before making yours. No matter whether its the opening, middlegame or the endgame, every stage of the game is important. Eventhough this is an old correspondence game played via post, but the lesson is relevant even today. You need to keep this in mind even while playing a chess game online.

I also have an interesting Chess Puzzle for you at the end of this video. Let’s see if you can find the best move for white in the given chess problem.
