Thought I kick off another blog with another moving cover.
Staying on book covers what about this one which was discovered
by and duly posted on Kenneth Spraggett’s site. It’s a great find.

*** The Candidates Playing Card Game ***
The candidates are here again. Eight players play each other twice and
the winner of the tournament gets to meet Magnus Carlsen in November.
So print out the following set of cards, glue then to a piece of cardboard,
get an adult to cut them out for you and you now own a super-duper set of
Candidate Playing Cards. You make up the rules as you go along. Good Luck.
*** The Swedish Immortal***
Arvid Sundin - Erik Andersson, Correspondence game 1964
This game quickly became titled as The Swedish Immortal and it was so
highly regarded that Sweden actually commissioned a stamp in it’s honour.
The final position of the Swedish Immortal on a Swedish stamp.
RHP has it’s own....er....em....Immortals. How about?

If ever there was Pause before Promoting lesson then this is it.
platoic - themban RHP 2011
This game gets the Red Hot Pawn stamp.
It’s valid. Print it, get the same adult who helped you with the Candidate Playing Cards
to cut it out for you, then glue it to an envelope and send it .Let me know if this works.
We end with another classic RHP moment from last year where one player
in a clear winning position has an idea and falls foul to a back rank trick.
