Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Peruvian Immortal is the name given to a spectacular chess game played by the Peruvian master (later grandmaster) Esteban Canal against an unknown amateur in a simultaneous exhibition he gave at Budapest in 1934.Du Mont calls it, "A charming game." Irving Chernev writes, "In 13 moves, Canal sacrifices both Rooks and his Queen—and then mates on his 14th move! ... A man might play a million games of chess and never duplicate Canal's feat." Fred Reinfeld writes, "When Anderssen sacrificed two Rooks, the Queen etc. against Kieseritzky, the finished product was described as "the immortal game." It might be more accurate to call it "an immortal game, for since that time there have been many claimants to the title.
