Hercdon
Member since May-11-19
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

   Dec-03-22 P Ravn vs Portisch, 1957
 
Hercdon: Indeed, this was a wild game! White had it in the bag despite Black having all of its major pieces on the h file. Then White nearly threw the game away. Luckily, black blundered it right back.
 
   Nov-26-22 J Tompa vs J Cuibus, 1973 (replies)
 
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.
