    yes! was played in the European ladies yesterday, with white is Aleksandra Goryachkina from Russia and with black is Scotlands Ketevan Grant originally from Georgia. Did you follow the US Ladies? did you see Sabina Fosior mate in eight? was pretty neat although all moves were forced, still was tricky.

    Sorry to say did not. Work has taken a heavy toll, 10 to 12 hour days plus hour+ commute, not much time for anything, not even music, but I did do a few new tunes and traditional stuff on SC, up to 57 tracks there. You listen to any of my newer tunes? I haven't picked up an instrument in a week, too much work here at my day job.

    Found it on YouTube. Was mate in 9.
    Pretty impressive.
    I once announced mate in 7 to my opponent on this site.
    He wouldn't resign and timeout was 21 days per move.
    And he dragged it out and made me play it out.
    So I had to change my announcement.

    Mate in 5 months !! 😀😀
