    Some chess book ideas.

    A couple of good games with some nice points worth knowing.

    On request a repeat showing of an En Passant Mate.

    The two cute lines alone are worth the price of admission.

    Regarding the ship's name, I had a quick dig around on the internet, the name of the ship appears to be unknown, but I can narrow it down to one of four. [1] gives the ship as one of: 'the Cinderella', 'the Sovereign', or 'the Vixen'. jessicafischerqueen has him commanding 'the Meteor' in 1925 in the discussion at the bottom of [2].

    Nice game against the machine.

    Hi Deep Thought,

    Thanks for the link.
    Someone has certainly been doing some digging into the past.
    The 'Meteor' would have been a great name for the gambit although
    it appears all Evans was doing was transporting a ship from A to B.

    The best bet looks like it was the 'Sovereign' as we have it docking at
    Milford Haven in 1825 in the Postal Records and it was a post office ship
    that Evans captained.

    The Sovereign Gambit?

    There should be a Cinderalla Opening or maybe we should start calling
    any pawn that reaches the 7th a Cinderalla pawn.

    Sovereigns?
    Gold coins?
    Made me revisit this gem.
