Have played for decades. Love bughouse.

   Dec-14-18 H Wolf vs Von Bardeleben, 1900 (replies)
Ratt Boy: Hmm…29.♖e7?? is obviously incorrect. Better 29.♖e4, ♗f8 30.♖ce1 looks good for White…butt I surely wouldn't resign yet.

Ratt Boy: <patzer2: Mate-in-four is not typical of most past Monday puzzle solutions.> Agreed, butt I believe it's not actuary mate, as White has 29.♗e3, ♕xe3 30.♖f2, ♗xf2 and Black is up a whole Rook (31.♕xf2, ♖h2+ gets mated).

Ratt Boy: The linque for today's GOTD is fatally flawed. The correct linque is likely Van der Wiel vs Yusupov, 1978 , a fun bit of king-kicking by Yusupov.

Ratt Boy: <nalinw:...Now the Game of the Day doesn't seem to exist.> I used the Search function to find it. B Lopez vs M Delgado Crespo, 2001

Ratt Boy: <chessthomas> Oooh, I saw the pawn promotion, butt missed that cute little line. Thanks!
   Aug-04-18 Mayet vs Harrwitz, 1847
Ratt Boy: <GrahamClayton:> As someone commented, that is likely a truncated version of this game.
   Aug-03-18 M Efroimski vs T Munkhchuluun, 2008 (replies)
Ratt Boy: <SpamIAm:> So sorry to hear that! I was planning to leave something about "too easy for a Friday" (defined as "a Friday that I have a clue of getting"), but now I'm sad to hear about Mr. Freeman's passing.
   Jul-21-18 K A Walbrodt vs Conill / Ostolaza / López / Herrer, 1893 (replies)
Ratt Boy: Can anyone 'splain me why 11.g3, which creates gaping holes all over the ♔side, is superior to 11.♕xf3, ♗g4 12.♕g3? I see no productive way for Black to harass White's ♕, or to get meaningful compensation for the 2♙ deficit.
   Jul-13-18 S Boden vs Belaiev, 1867 (replies)
Ratt Boy: Outside of the Queen, Black has no pieces developed in the final position. I wonder if perhaps that contributed to his quick demise?!
   Jul-10-18 J Noa vs J Mason, 1883 (replies)
Ratt Boy: <tpstar: 16. gxf3 ♗h2+ 17. ♔g2 (17. ♔h1? ♖e1+ 18. ♕f1 ♖xf1+ 19. ♔g2 ♖g1#) ♖e1 and the only defense to 18 ... ♖g1# is 18. ♕f1 ♖xf1 19. ♔xf1 ♕f4 winning quickly (20. ♗g4 h5).> He also has ...
