    Batman on the chessboard.

    We then look at the position from a famous painting which
    leads onto some Red Hot Pawn games with the same theme.

    My pop up chess set.

    A very brief review of ‘Chess for Dummies’ which in turn allows
    me to show one of my favourite RHP games and an amusing study.

    It is White to play and draw.

    This has been copied, examined and played out by two RHP lads. Game 9940626

    What are the odds that an RHP game would get almost the exact drawn position in that diagram? I'm not sure why anyone would want to contrive a really neat prearranged draw on RHP, but this looks like a candidate!

    Hi Paul,

    Of course it's pre-arranged draw. But nothing at stake. No harm.

    I've stumbled across a few in my time. They may have been using
    the game for training, showing a group in a club - who knows?

    These two, eattables - rumuu Game 7466264 played out a known 12 move stalemate.
