The game


[Black "Ferrie, J."]
[White "Brown, F."]

1. 10-14 22-17 2. 7-10 17-13 3. 11-15 25-22 4. 8-11 22-17 5. 2-7 24-20 6. 4-8 28-24 7. 12-16 32-28 8. 8-12 29-25 9. 14-18 23-14 10. 9-18 17-14 11. 10-17 21-14 12. 6-10 25-21 13. 10-17 21-14 14. 16-19 13-9 15. 12-16 30-25 16. 19-23 26-10 White wins

Obviously, Ferrie saw the jump 26-12 (instead of 26-10) followed by the 2 for 1 to a probable draw

3-8 instead of 19-23 draws but appears to have winning possibilities for Black.
