And why not?

Three interesting games. One from Bebop v GM Alex Yermolinsky, of course
one is a Halloween Gambit, and one cracker from RHP01! plus two pictures of
Alexandra Kosteniuk who is also a cracker.

If you have a good Halloween Gambit and I know a load of you swear by this
opening, then feel free to post. (a coupole of good Black wins would be good.)

It's funny, but you don't see Carlsen pictured in his swimming trucks hugging a giant chess piece on a beach (see link). I wonder why that is?

Also, I hadn't realised she'd beaten Anand at Blitz 😀

It's because Carlsen is Norwegian, and the site doesn't want to show him in his sauna costume.

Hi Haven't tried the Halloween yet... but once we have two more entrants for the Halloween Gambit Tournament (Tournament 12967) - then we will be off. 😲
Hopefully to start not too long after Halloween!

Fantastic blog as always.

Are you planning to do more mating patterns soon?

What about this trio?

Hi Velvet Ears.

I'll go back to Mating Patterns. Just running through a dry period at the moment.

Just waiing on someone/anyone to send me a picture of them playing chess
in an odd situation to kick me off.

Does me playing a game of chess against my Rover in my driveway count as odd?

how about a blog post with games with an absurd number of promotions and underpromotions like the nakamura game I posted? I know I find those amusing 🙂
