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.

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.
