Blondie, Phobias and Daft Knights

Me and Mrs Greenpawn saw Blondie.

Smashing! The girl still has it.
‘Dreaming’ was one of the best and most energetic performances I seen any live band
do and I’ve seen The Ramones, Deep Purple and dozens of punk em up bands.
Of course it helps if you have a back catalogue of brilliant songs.

Let us catch up with The RHP 2013 Championship statistics. (last blog stats in brackets)

White wins so far 1422 (685)
Black wins so far 1285 (588)
Draws = 78 (31) That is still 3% of all games finished so far!

White Checkmates = 623 (303)
Black Checkmates = 525 (224)
Stalemates = 2 (1)

105 (39) pawns have been promoted to a Queen.
2 (1) under promotions to a Knight.
As yet no under promotions to a Rook or Bishop.

Just decided I no longer like the term ‘under promotion’.
From now it’s a subservient promotion of a pawn. Let it be so.

A stronger player duffs up a weaker player big deal.
No. Every game has something in it. Here we discuss phobias.

I found this by the same Black player.

Of course all this yak about phobias is just that. Yak. And I’m only have a piece
of fun with Perreby. We all have bad Knight games.

It’s just me building a theme and this week it’s Knights on the rim.

“Knights on the rim are dim.” is often quoted. However exceptions are a plenty.

Where see a Knight going to h4 for a valid reason and when attacking a King
don’t forget to look after your own King.

You have heard of doubled Rooks. How’s about doubled Knights…on the rim.

These two Knights each pick up a Rook on e1 Read on…..

Donmac (1628) - reboot (1395) RHP Ch 2013

Tactics all the way culminating in a very rare RHP event.
A sound sacrifice of the Queen.

Black put in a lot effort to get a technically won game.
He then slips into sleep mode and is murdered whilst he slumbers.

As usual we end on a high note with some world-class play.
