    A girl who claims Paul Morphy is inside her head and passing on moves.

    Ends with a Najdorf that is beyond blog analysis.
    Four Queens on the board after 24 moves.

    Interestingly, in the Redmike-richardcjennings game, Black could have won it a few moves earlier, and much more simply than he probably believed. White moved out of check to the wrong square, and then...

    A Good Spot Shallow Blue.

    Had an inkling Black may have a mate in there if he went to wrong square.
    Was more interested in what ghosts he was seeing.
    He appears to have become fixated with that c-pawn and not looking any further.
    Though you are right, sniffing it out OTB would have been a toughie.

    The Queen and Rook Tango with the King is good.
    (Before anyone asks. SMP = Standard Mating Pattern).
