Chess in Canada: Vancouver-Victoria match

From British Columbia comes word of a match played on the 7th inst. between teams representing the Vancouver and Victoria chess clubs, won by the former side by the score of 5 1/2 - 2 1/2. We have one game from the event to share with our readers. In it, Mr. Stark of Vancouver, as second player in a Sicilian Defense, takes advantage of the somewhat indifferent opening play of Mr. Gibson of Victoria, first establishing a superior position and then deciding matters via some pretty tactics.
