In 1958 my friend Matt Long pulled a shot on J. C. Monroe while playing in The Denvir Master Mail Tourney. Here is the position:
J. C. Monroe -Red: 2,3,10,11,15,21,17,27K
Matt Long- White: 30,26,22,13,20,12,18, 1K and it is white's move
Now White goes 26-23 (A), 17-26, 13-9, 15-22, 1-5, 27-18, 30-7, 3-10,
9-6, 2-9, 5-16, White Wins
(A) Starts a big stroke that takes eleven pieces off the board and shocks Mr. Monroe.
Bill, Matt Long really enjoyed solving problems and composing problems but maybe his best problem was this as it came up in actual play.
All the best,
