Grew-Schwartz, 827 GE (ca. 13000 AD)

As long as I'm posting games from literature, here's the game played between Grew and Schwartz in chapter 11 of Asimov's Pebble in the Sky. It too was an actual game.

Third USSR Championship, Moscow 1924
First Brilliancy Prize
Ruy Lopez [C84]

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.Nc3 Be7 6.O-O b5 7.Bb3 d6 8.d3 O-O 9.Nd5 Na5 10.Nxe7+ Qxe7 11.Ne1 Nxb3 12.axb3 Nd7 13.f4 f5 14.exf5 Rxf5 15.Nf3 Bb7 16.Bd2 exf4 17.Nd4 Rg5 18.Nf3 Rg4 19.h3 Rxg2+ 20.Kxg2 Qg5+ 21.Kh1 Ne5 22.Qe2 Qg3 23.Qg2 Nxf3 24.Bc3 Nd4 25.Qxb7 Qxh3+ 26.Kg1 Ne2+ 27.Kf2 Qe3+

The actual ending of the game was 28.Ke1 Nxc3#, but in the book the ending was given as 28.Kg2 Qg3+ 29.Kh1 Qh3#.
