Peter the nonagenarian

Happy 90th birthday today to Peter Keffler!

Members of Clacton Chess Club celebrated Peter’s birthday at their Club Night on Tuesday.   A cake was presented to Peter which featured his queen sacrifice from a 1970 game where he played Black in a Two Knights Defence against Gerhard Niemand which lasted only 15 moves.

During the evening everyone present had a piece of Peter’s cake with their coffee/tea.

Here’s the game:
