The Worst Move On the Board III


The previous two in our series dealt with moves uniquely allowing mates in one. Vulgar, by comparison with today's effort. It's from Lone Pine 1978, Jonathan Mestel against Walter Browne: the position shown occurred after White's forty-seventh move. Despite the reduced material and his habitual struggle against the clock, Browne, to his credit, found in this drawn position an elegant way to lose - and the swiftest.
