Assuming this is the game described at, I think it fits the bill; it is a chess game with a vying phase, or a vying game with the traditional "showdown" replaced with a game of chess. (Of course, since I am not an editor, I cannot see how well or poorly the original author has written the article. I may produce my own write-up; it is an interesting game, and I think it deserves a place on this site.)
