evenua: <Benjamin Lau: Hehe, nice final position.> Yeah, nice final position. And congrats to the winner!
Well, at first, I thought the clue would mean the game contains a lot of checks, because + (check) looks like a cross. So I tried everything out there.
1. I got to know that there was a game in which 141(!!) checks were delivered. However, this game was not in the CG's database. I tried others too, such as a game with the longest series of checks (74), longest *mutual* series of checks (6), etc, only to find that these are not on CG.
2. Then, I came to think that a *bishop* might have something to do with warding off vampires. For example, I tried to find an endgame with 4 bishops, etc. Well, that was not an easy job.
3. I also thought of players who were (or are) priest. I was aware that Ruy Lopez the famous was a priest, so tried to find his own games, only to fail again. Here my patience came to an end, and I gave up searching.
Anyway, very nice work by <neurome> and congratulations. Keep up the good work!
