When I was little my father taught me a basic chess strategy: to evolve the figures and to occupy the middle of the board. This animating concept is appliable to any game and shows how the players succeeded in doing so without disturbing the viewer with the importance of each figure. In spite of this I chose a game played in the 19th century in one Paris restaurant that became famous because of the beauty of figure sacrifices made in it.
