My life is complete. I now have a Doctor Who Chess Set.
Normally I shun these gimmick, historic or decorative chess sets.
I’m a Staunton design man, I think most of us chess players are.
However it was only £2.00 from a charity shop - that is the wife’s Christmas sorted.
Because I have found so many (both sound and unsound ) this will be a regular feature.
White sacs two Rooks thinking he will get them back. Infact not winning any
Rook was the way to go and Black’s best move was to just to take one Rook.

Next. Why Oh Why did Black not play 15...h5? It must have broken White’s heart.

I was looking at a ‘Where’s Wally’ (could not find him)
So thought what a good idea. Where is Greenpawn?...Good Luck.
Most players have seen and heard of it, very few get to the chance to play it.
Benjamin Barker has played it twice! Once in 2018 and then again in 2019.

We end this weeks fun and jollity with this work of art.
White to play and win (sadly I do not know who composed it.)
Actually it’s a mate in 17 but do not despair I won’t ask you to solve it
though if you see the idea the first 13 moves are easy, well pretty easy.
Solution to ‘Where’s Greenpawn....
I’m on e4!
