A Famous Chess Match from 1910 Reenacted with Claymation

We take you back to the famous Roesch – Schlage chess match played in 1910. Normally, when we replay matches in our minds, it looks something like this. Or like this:

Game: 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. Qe2 b5 6. Bb3 Be7 7. c3 O-O 8. O-O d5 9. exd5 Nxd5 10. Nxe5 Nf4 11. Qe4 Nxe5 12. Qxa8 Qd3 13. Bd1 Bh3 14. Qxa6 Bxg2 15. Re1 Qf3 16. Bxf3 Nxf3#

But, you have got to admit, it looks infinitely better when presented in claymation like this. H/T to Metafilter
