The result of the last blogs win a music C.D. (and a chess book.) competition
and a glimpse on what goodies may be on offer the next time we run another.

Finally my review of Carlsen’s ‘My 60 Memorable Games’ by Andrew Soltis.

A smashing puzzle from the latest CHESS (January 2022)
White, as usual playing up the board, to play and win.


Then Deep Blue messing about with a game from the 1920’s

A couple of examples of the curse of the greenpawn blog

The last contest kinda sucked. 😒

Didn't you just pick the first guy...who also happened to be a Brit?

Yes! 😉 (the postage last time cost 15 times more than the book cost me)
But it was also just a joke competition as soon as I saw it I liked it. The Beatles!!!

Venda is from Yorkshire, (still cost me 6 times more than the CD and book cost)
I could have picked one of the Edinburgh based Scots and delivered it in person.
(you have to remember I'm a retired O.A.P. every penny is a prisoner.)

The one for 'Mastering Chess' will be world wide. Anywhere, cost will not matter .
I'll ask Bigdog or even Russ to judge it.

If asked I'll autograph the book, though to be honest it might be worth more if I don't!

Just need to think of a good competition. Give me till the next blog.
(any ideas would be very welcome.)
