Jun-06-06  Marvol: "HRob Evan der Plas?"

That looks like a seriously garbled Dutch name to me. Somewhere it must have been translated to Chinese and back. By someone who understands Chinese nor Dutch.

Jun-06-06  PaulKeres: <TheAlchemist>, I think you're probably right.
Feb-08-09  WhiteRook48: I worked out 87. Bd7+ Kb8 (...Kd8 Ne6#)
88. Kc6 Ka7 89. Kc7 Ka8 90. Kb6 Kb8 91. Na6+ Ka8 92. Bc6# 1-0
Jun-15-09  WhiteRook48: that's about the only case I can do
Sep-28-16  Martin Rattigan: Interestingly, White has mate in 22 after move 58 so long as he leaves the pawn alone. Just blockading the pawn is usually faster with a backward pawn.
