I’m just an old fogie that likes to look at the odd chess puzzle or game in his spare time. It reminds me that I’m a player of limited ability so no use playing a real game! I was at my Chess best in high school when I managed to become top board of my school team. Then other priorities took hold etc and my precipitous decline in chess skills followed that of pitching phenom Steve Blass. The last sentence hints at my Pittsburgh - area past but I currently live in southeastern Michigan

Hercdon: White had a forced mate in no less than six moves with 31. Bg5+. But I can understand how this could have been hard to find OTB

Hercdon: Maybe pawn promotions to Queens should be outlawed. This chessboard had way too many queens.

Hercdon: Yeah I too went for Ng8 first resulting in 24...Kd8 25.Bc3+ Kc8 26.Bxa5. What blocked me from making the correct move was I thought the follow up would be Rd7 mate except it is not mate. I should have realized I can leave the rook where it was and then make my favorite knight move

Hercdon: Somebody�s calendar broke, Again
