    I love it.

    A truly amazing coincidence.

    Spot the link in the checkmates.
    You could not make this up.
    Both games played on here and both under 20 moves.

    I have never ever written 0-0++ or 0-0-0++ on my score sheet, but I am still hoping!

    It's funny the opportunities that play online presents to us. I have played just over 1000 OTB games since I started playing rated chess in the USCF in 1987.

    Here at RHP, I will probably match that number in 18 months. And I have seen some crazy stuff!

    I guess you could say that's the long and short of it. (sorry, I couldn't resist)

    Crazy stuff is right.

    But it's so brilliantly done. Some of the blunders are not simple over sights
    but have taken weeks and weeks of careful planning.
    The lads just shrug them off and start another game.

    I was playing over a few games recently where players in safe positions
    castled into mate in one. I love them, I really do.

    Never noticed both Queens on g7. Could have made something of that.
