    Hints on your first blind date from Boris Spassky and Vanessa Redgrave
    remember to take your 1937 Chess Review (A classic collectors item this one)

    Some 1937 advice used by Carlsen in the 2017 Tata Steel,
    who also did a bit of shoulder surfing by nicking a Karjakin idea

    A spiffing helpmate in two from Dr. P. G. Keeney


    Black goes first and helps White to mate Black in two moves.

    A 1620 game from Greco that in 2005 two RHP players follow
    perfectly move for move right down to the final Greco checkmate.

    Finally the RHP Hall of Doom with three 2017 examples of RHP play.

    Would anyone care to elaborate why this thread would get two thumbs down? I thought it was pretty good. What did I miss?

    Hi Paul,

    I always pick up a couple or three every now and then. When I notice that is.
    Some people don't like it...so some people don't like it. (shrug)

    I'd like some feedback as to why then maybe I can try and improve or feature
    something they would like. But a blind thumbs down does not bother me at all.

    (between you and me it is probably disgruntled 'Hall of Doom' residents.)

    Nah, it's people that want to get IN the Hall of Doom. So many players out there are playing the craziest moves and deliberately set traps for themselves, fighting to get in there. But your strict policy of maximally about 3 to 4 games a piece frustrates them tremendously.
