For many people of my generation, however, at a time when the choice of books on chess was very limited, he provided the first exposure to the richness of the game and stimulated a lifelong association with its pleasures and frustrations. Soon after learning the moves, at the age of about I acquired a copy of one of his books, the only chess book on sale in Redruth at the time. Everything in it was new to me including a game featuring my favourite sequence in chess, Anastasia's mate. Ever since then I've wanted to use the idea myself. The opportunity finally came over years later in a five minute game on the Internet Chess Club. Not the most significant game, then, but certainly high on the list of those have given me most pleasure.} 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 e6 4. O-O Nge7 5. d4 cxd4 6. Nxd4 a6 7. Bxc6 Nxc6 8. Be3 Qc7 9.
