I’m just an old fogie that likes to look at the odd chess puzzle or game in his spare time. It reminds me that I’m a player of limited ability so no use playing a real game! I was at my Chess best in high school when I managed to become top board of my school team. Then other priorities took hold etc and my precipitous decline in chess skills followed that of pitching phenom Steve Blass. The last sentence hints at my Pittsburgh - area past but I currently live in southeastern Michigan

Hercdon: Darn, was looking for a mating net
   Jul-06-22 D Kryakvin vs Evgeni Kuligin, 2008 (replies)
Hercdon: Although 20. � h5 would have given Black a winning position. Instead NxR gets Black mated

Hercdon: <Mr bojangles> lol!
   Jun-02-22 V Lilov vs B Rzayev, 2009 (replies)
Hercdon: Yes Bxh7 works as the solution; it�s even better than the actual move. Embarrassment of riches is right
   May-28-22 R Pogorelov vs D H Campora, 2007 (replies)
Hercdon: It sounds like nobody here knows why white lost in what appears at worst to be a drawn position. How can we learn more about this game?
