In our new post series, "Best chess games of the World Champions", we are going to take a flashback in the chess history and examine the best games of every single World Champion.

The first post, covering the games of the first World Champion, Wilhelm Steinitz, is out there.

Wilhelm Steinitz is universally recognised as the father of the modern chess. Whereas everyone else was relying mostly on gambit openings and sharp tactical play, Steinitz revolutionised chess with his principles of strategic and defensive play, which laid the foundation for the subsequent development of chess in decades to come.

White to play and win... IN A PAWN ENDGAME !!!
