    Just a Merry Collection of RHP blunders from weird openings.
    (and an excuse for me to show you a model of the Santa Maria.)

    This is from an RHP game. Black to play which Bishop was taken by a pawn?



    A puzzle featuring eight! under promotions to a Knight.

    A mate in 31 which is really a mate 15 (anyone know the composer?)


    White playing up the board mates in 15 moves.

    I couldn't find this problem in any online databases.

    Wasn't too hard to solve.

    Guess I should go read the blog if I want to know why they thought it took 31 moves.
