    In the lead up to the diagram in the first post I was reminded of this
    game which appeared in one of the first blogs.

    Thx for writing this blog. You always seem to find the interesting stuff that is hidden in the game.

    May I ask why the duck is on holiday? Visiting family, fascination by the Great Lakes...?

    He's going to the Marshall Chess Club to get his picture taken
    with that bust of Marshall.

    When he comes basck he's off Tallinn in Estonia to get a picture of
    him next to the plaque dedicated to Paul Keres.

    He must be quite excited I suppose.

    By the time he gets home he must be 'cream quackered!'

    I'll do the jokes Michael.

    Where do you live? The Duck also wants picture of him at his favorite football
    teams ground. (Norwich - nicknamed The Canaries.).

    He is going to go all over the world. The pyramids, the great wall of China,
    the leaning tower of..........that place where the leaning tower is.
    And the lads on RHP are going to help me.

    By the time he's finished he will be 'cream quackered!'

    If he has time, he might want to check out the job going in Hollywood for someone to stand in for Donald during those risky stunt sequences.

    Could be a double duck opening.

    Found a game played Donald Duck.

    Donald Duck - Bayyappan RHP 2006.

    White is using the Donald Duck Attack v the Caro Kann.
    (Nice alert wrap up,)

    I'll write you some more puns, GP!

    I'm in Lincolnshire.

    In September I am off to Arizona, (again), for a holiday. The duck is welcome to join me. (I won't tell the wife!) I'll book his seat and pay for it too!

    If he wants to meet Donald Duck, that can be arranged.

    "In Bedingbedang - barselona RHP 2008 move 4 why would white play fxe3
    (creating unprotected double pawns) and not Qxe3?"

    Hi Alistair72

    I’m glad and I’m sad you brought that game up.

    Usually I have chess writers luck. A game falls into my lap and it all
    flows well. The bad moves are spotted and it wraps itself up all neat.

    This game was going that way until I spotted a dead jammy move.
    “Why did that move have to be there. Everything was going just perfect.”
    The notes were writing themselves.

    Originally I was going to show the whole game, It has some instructive moments
    for the 1400-1800 lads. but…

    Bedingbedang - barselona RHP 2008



    To answer the question about why White took doubled e-pawns….



    …by playing 16fxe3 here.

    At this stage of the proceedings it’s 6 and two 3’s.White is a piece and position down.
    But trying to get inside the lad’s head.
    I say he opted for 16. fxe3 because after 16.Qxe3.


    Black can play 16…Qxe5 and the Queens are off.

    These lads play to a fighting finish. It’s Checkmate or bust.
    With the Queens on there is always a chance. Always.
    (wait for the next blog for some classic examples. here is just a wee taste
    of some games I won’t be using..)

    magic13 - jason deal RHP 2008



    WillieNelson (1455) - Daving (1388) RHP 2010



    Watch this and be impressed. Anything can happen with the Queens on
    and of course the King never leaves the board.

    chinesedragon - ropopa RHP 2008



    And that was the games I will not be using. I have some brilliant 'Oh No!'
    games for the next blog.
