The Hungry Rook. -

The Hungry Rook. -

Sir Alfred Kempe was a British Ecclesiastical barrister and diocesean chancellor best known for his work as an amateur mathematician. Several of his amateur chess games had been published in various chess periodicals of his day and later in various games collections.

In this game, he sacs his Queen to let his Rook eat pieces like Pac-man, then allows the Rook its own sacrificial demise to force mate.
