This Blog stars with a picture of me. (If it's god enough for Natalia then...etc...etc..)

Couple of smashing games.
BillyDean - wolfgang59 RHP 2012 is a really good game.
Smashing piece of calculation no obvious silly blunders by the loser.

What Happened Next.

What Happened next? (No.1)

I know what you thinking.
Somehow White managed to swap his Knight and pawn for the Black Knight
and Black was left with the wrong Bishop for the a-pawn.

Close and well spotted but no coconut.

What Happened Next? (No.2)

White to play and Black mated White in three moves.
(remember you are looking for bad moves.)

Which Black piece gives the checkmate.

What Happened Next? (No.3)

eric palmqyist - OMuniz860 RHP 2010 (Black to play)

You have to find a move that allows White to checkmate Black in one move.
Find the move that White played instead of checkmating Black and
then find the two moves that allowed Black to checkmate White instead.

Got that?
White misses mate one and allows Black to mate him two moves later.

The solutions plus much more including an OTB missed mate in one.

caissad4's mate in 3 is worth checking out all by itself. That is just a beautiful mate.

One of my sons, Karl Hinds played chess on here for awhile and played BillyDean and got ahead, but then made a mistake and then got busy with other things and by the time he got back to the game his time had expired and BillyDean had taken his skull. He hasn't played another game since then. He is not near as good as me so I was surprised when he showed the position. I think I could have won that game if I had the position he had at one point, but he blew it like he usually does.
