A glimpse at my new single (plus the flip side)

A selection of RHP games from this year featuring Rook and Bishop endings.

Mad Magazine and of course The Hall of Doom.

I shared this one on my local club's facebook page- it is as educational as it is entertaining. McKinley Morganfield would approve!

That looks good Monnbus, but I think all you have done
is added yet more sleepless nights to MrDcomer1. 🙂

You're so kind, GP. You've given me something else to brood over during my long sleepless nights than the games I've lost: now I can brood over how I've tormented poor MrD.

The last good nights sleep I had was the night before I learned how to play chess.

So, do tell ... whether you brood over the games you've lost, or over the torment you cause the rest of us by pillorying the games we've lost ?

PS Thanks for the thread on Morphy, bishop & rook endings, and that awful opera. I'd have been playing chess too, rather than paying attention to Norma.

Brooding over a loss.

" Not a single one!, I would not have won so many tournaments and World
Championship matches if I constantly lamented the missed opportunities.

Think of the match in Seville with Kasparov in 1987. Ten more seconds and I would have
beaten him and regained the world title.

Not to mention the fact that it cost me $400,000 in financial terms. If you spend your
entire life tormenting yourself, the nervous system breaks down very quickly.

Of course I retain the lesson learned from it, but the fact itself, I try to forget."

Anatoly Karpov.

The question was :

"Is there a stamp that is no longer in your collection, and whose loss you bitterly regret?"

But Karpov swung it back to chess.
