    Surprisingly enough, the board on the cover seems to be the right way 'round.

    Underhanded chess is one of my favorite books. I have tried some of the underhanded tactics in my own games.

    Thanks for adding the game GP.

    Immortal? Immortally bad recently. I do have a nice smothered mate game from a year back where again I should never have won.

    A smothered mate that is also a swindle must be the Holy Grail of Chess. Congratulations!
