I’ve been playing in the One Day Ladder Thingy Thing. So far been lucky
as have yet to land on a snake and slide down (Snakes and Ladders gedit.?)

I’ve climb up 9 pages from 20 games using my strategy of challenging players that

All the games have had their moments these are two recent efforts.

Black has just taken a Rook on d1. That is a pure Back Stab.

I’ve only found two Black Stabs in the back on RHP, here is one.
