    A blog around 64squaresofpain's thread with the King & Queen swap mate.
    (surely we can do better than that?)

    Some more RHP games with this mate.
    A smashing example of how to chuck a totally won game.
    A couple of perpetual crackers.

    King & Queen swap mate is better than those. I can't think of nothing better right now. I have to go. Be back later.

    The Soul Mate, Abdication mate, Cross-dress mate, Couples mate,
    Leap frog mate, reverse cowgirl mate and swap mate.

    Have all been suggested in the comments box.

    I was out today just browsing when 'Palindrome Mate' popped into my skull.

    A Palindrome is sentence that spells the same forwards and backwards -
    "Rats live on no evil star.", "God saw I was dog".

    I've been emalied by a non-RHP member blog reader.
    I get quite a few of those. I ask them/tell them to join RHP.

    Hi, the opening sequence 1.e3, 2.Qe2, 3.Kd1, 4.Qe1 is known in some circles as
    the Transvestite Attack. Mike Chisholm played it a few times, and (I think) George
    Moultrie played it in the 70's.

    I saw someone else mention the Transvestite Attack and the Transvestite Mate.
    So how about it. The Transvestite Mate.

    (BTW - the Duck has arrived in the USA OK. ST40 is about to take him on tour.)

    John & Yoko mate.

    Macho Lennon decided in the 1970s to be the stay-at-home parent looking after the kid while Yoko ran business affairs.
