A pic of a lad playing chess at the latest Super Bowl.

A helpmate in five moves.

In a Helpmate Black goes first and both sides work together to checkmate Black.
I try these from time. This one caught my attention because it is so few pieces.

Then a construction test. Construct a position where White has a King, Knight
and a Bishop but cannot win unless you remove either the Knight or Bishop.
I give one solution. You are welcome to try and construct another. (good luck!)

Next an RHP game where the player who lost had a great trap he could have tried.
Onto a few interesting and instructive OTB games, Olive - Botshon, USA 1987
is well worth playng over from a Larsen opening and I added in a few cartoons.

Hi greenpawn,

You have posted the blog link in the wrong forum. Idiot!

I know. Never mind, I'll talk my way out of it.

'Helpmate and a Construction Task.' is the name of new clan I was thinking
of starting but I have changed my mind.

Good work Greenpawn, now nobody will suspect you of being a fool.

...on the other hand, people might wonder what happened to your close relation to the powers that govern RHP
