The Green Pawn? It has nothing to do with I'm greenpawn over at Red Hot Pawn and when I wrote for the Hibs fanzine in the 70's i went under the name of Green Pawn.

   Dec-09-23 London Chess Classic (2023) (replies)
Sally Simpson: Not long back from Christmas shopping. It was hell with an in store argument because 'apparently' I was buying the best presents for my side of the family whilst her side of the family were getting fobbed off with less expensive gifts. (yes I am using G.C, as my diary because ...
   Dec-09-23 Niemann vs M Bartel, 2023 (replies)
Sally Simpson: Hi Jersey Bob. I was anticipating others not knowing what I meant so I gave the Edward Winter link. It's a term I've used on here before, it should be used more often in the chess lexicon, it's great word. Yes, Al Horowitz and Chernev were fond of using it. I think I first ...
   Dec-08-23 J Moussard vs Adams, 2023 (replies)
Sally Simpson: How about a wee nod to Adams for rolling the dice when in a lost position. [DIAGRAM] He must have seen 37...Kh8 still hung on but a loss in the long run so decided to risk a quick end rather than suffer. He rolled the bones with 31...Rxf7 hoping Black would miss the backward ...

   Dec-06-23 Colle vs Capablanca, 1929 (replies)
Sally Simpson: Hi Fred, Thank You. Your idea about removing an 'L' from Colle gave me the idea to kick off my traditional Christmas Quiz. What famous Christmas Carol is this; Magnus Carsen? Answer: 'Noel, Noel, Noel No-el' More fun and nonsense at; ...

Sally Simpson: Hi Perfidious, Marshall was one player I could at least half understand what he was up too. Sometimes I was ahead of him and could see what was coming. I first came across him in Chernev's 'Most Instructive' and an Alekhine note; 'a typical Marshall trap.' Then I got his ...
   Dec-05-23 M A Tabatabaei vs Niemann, 2023 (replies)
Sally Simpson: This has appeared on ECF site. <"Niemann and Tabatabaei were playing bullet at the party last night, before heading off together and generally looking best buddies. Hence their quick (dare I say pre-arranged?) draw today not a huge surprise."> ...

Sally Simpson: Hi PawnSac. I do not mind answering an 8 year old post but triangles, rectangles and something called a trapezoid(?) Is that when you trap a zoid in a two mover. (I googled 'zoid' and got; 'Zoid can refer to either an asexually reproductive spore or a sexually reproductive ...
