Answers to last weeks quiz and Spot the Difference Competition.

Part two on how I use Chessbase to get games for the blog.

The inspiration was from an OTB game Gelfand - Lautier, Belgrade 1997
which featured a Bishop outplaying a Rook. Well it should have been but
Lautier missed it. Instead I have found a few RHP Bishop v Rook checkmates.

Gelfand - Lautier, Belgrade 1997 (Black to play)

After that a couple of Knight v Red Hot Pawn Rooks checkmates.
(the Knight gets jealous if I show too many Bishop checkmates)
