RHP Treasure + No.9

RHP Treasure + No.9


I knew the game existed but I could not get my hands on the score.
I bribed guards, I blackmailed policemen, I greased the palms of politicians.
I frightened nurses and even threatened school children with a Chinese burn.

But none would talk. No one would reveal the secret whereabouts of the game.

Then one day a sad dwarf with a wooden leg and red cotton hat came up
to me at a bus stop and told me where the score of the game was buried.

The Score


AT last! The game where White captures nine pieces on the trot and resigned one move later?

Here is a wee transparent trap Janowski set Tarrasch in Ostend 1907

Those are not pictures of Janowski and Tarrasch………………Russ.

OK but Janowski and Tarrasch pictures are copyright are you going to pay if I use them?

We have seen not what to do, here is someone doing it.

And as for RHP players walking into a needless pawn mate in Rook and Pawn endings.
How many do you want? Nine, Nine Hundred, Nine Thousand, Nine Hundred Thousand?

Next observe how brilliantly White builds himself a mating net. Gifted play.

OK this is the last one. Three is enough

I lied, one more, and as always I’ve saved the best till last.

eldullo - igarlick RHP 2010


I lied again!. This is the best one. White is losing hands down.


Resignation cannot be far away. But he decides to let Black promote a pawn,
in the process he sacrifices his lone Rook and checkmates Black with a pawn.

Sorry. Anyone stumbling on here would think all the RHP lads are absolutely mad and off their rockers.
So here is a nice wee piece of calculation where we see everything being removed to promote a pawn.

And we might as well hammer home the rule that Rooks belong behind passed pawns.

We pause for Golden Oldie No.9.


White (playing up the board) to play and mate in one move.

I mentioned The Borg (anagram of Grob………….I warned you that was coming.)
In the 2014 Championship the imaginative musirapha has a P4.W 4 record with it.

It is White’s 11th move that raises this game above the ordinary.


And finally we jump into the pool of joy that was…
