    Phew...

    I like finding combo's played by the good guys and you lot
    playing the same type of combo. I found a good trick played
    by both Karpov and Hector and try as I might I could not find
    anyone on here playing the same trick.

    I found a load of positions where the shot was on but all the RHP players
    missed it! I had given up but then suddenly found two back to back.

    Some snappy play including an unheard melody from Nimzovitch.

    Not forgetting the usual closer with a game from the RHP Museum of Misery.

    This is a nice one, with another arrow to put in our quivers. The Jonny Hector ending is especially cool!

    That's what I'm trying to do - give the lads ideas and have some fun.

    I like to think I hammer them home so if the chance crops up
    it won't be missed. Actually thought I'd not find an example.
    I knew I'd find a few misses and I always find a lad who has played it.
    This time I nearly came up empty.

    The Hector game is good (though I prefer Nimzo's unheard melody.)
