    A look at a problem from the very first chess column from the year 1813.

    A new chess notation I have invented. It will soon be adopted world wide.

    A chess coincidence from 1922. Two games being played side by side at Hastings
    just happen to reach the exact same position from two different openings. For the
    sake of completeness I have put both games here (too perfect for the main Blog)

    An RHP game also reach the same position. That is imperfect so it is where it belongs.

    The two coincidence games in full.

    A Rubinstein - A Conde, Hastings (round 5), 1922



    F. Yates - P. Sergeant, Hastings (round 5), 1922

    Neither game is quite full...

    On another note, why did GPrincip play Rxb3?

    Thank you again for your blog.

    And I would be eager to use the new Notation, it would add a bit of confusion to the game 😉

    Somehow when I copied the games over 0-0 was changed into something else
    and it stopped the PGN thingy from working. Sorted it. Here are the games.

    A Rubinstein - A Conde, Hastings (round 5), 1922

    Looks like it changed the hyphens in 0-0 into en- or em-dashes.
