18 years of Chess at RedHotPawn

18 years ago today, after a couple of months of intense late night coding, what was at the time one hobby project among many hobby projects, RedHotPawn was released to the world.

That chess site with the ridiculous name.

Happy 18th Birthday RHP

Now RedHotPawn has reached adulthood! 🎂 By dot com standards, it is virtually prehistoric!

Thank you to all who continue to play your chess here, and to all the subscribers who help fund the site.

    RHP has given me countless hours of 'enjoyment' , if that's the right word for someone who loses games with depressing regularity, but anyway, stimulating it certainly is. It's a great website, thanks, Phil.
