Hanks vs Purdy Slugfest



    Everyone knows the name Purdy, but few will recognize his opponent in this game. John Hanks, who passed away at the age of 83 in 2009, was an Australian Master and one of the county’s leading players from the late 1940’s to the 1970’s. He was runner-up in the 1949 Australian Championships and played board two for Australia at the Havana Olympiad in 1964. You can read an interesting article on about him ChessKids. ChessChat also has some information. In the following game I’ve only give the ‘meaty’ part. If you want to play out all the move you can do so on ChessTempo.
