Oppenheimer Bombs vs. Einstein

Though Albert Einstein and J. Robert Oppenheimer played this game back in 1933, somehow I wasn’t notified about it until Susan Polgar posted it on her blog last week. The members of the Castle Kimbark staff who were responsible for this oversight have been sacked.

The father of the atom bomb was clearly outclassed here, though Einstein seems to have known his way around the Ruy Lopez pretty well.

We apologize for the lack of annotations. The members of the Castle Kimbark staff responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked, have been sacked.

(I'm hoping your sacked joke was a lead-in for this. If not, know that it stood quite well on its own accord. And feel free to sack me.)
