I'm more of a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none. Chess, Shatranj, Xiangqi, Janggi, Shogi, Makruk, and a few I've made up for pending sci-fi stories.

   May-22-23 J Garcia Padron vs J Bellon Lopez, 1990
Korora: A Rook? I guess you could Black promoted with CAW-tion.
   May-22-23 F Duz-Khotimirsky vs NN, 1910 (replies)
Korora: Two solutions: 15:♕xh6+ ♖xh6 16.♗xh6# or 15.♗xh6+ ♖xh6 16,♕xh6#.
   May-20-23 D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956
Korora: Hans Kmoch described Fischer in this game as sitting "like a little Buddha, showing his moves with the calm regularity of an automaton." That sounds to me like a chess player in the Zone.
   May-19-23 V Rauzer vs N Grigoriev, 1929 (replies)
Korora: Saw the ♘xh6+ gxh6 but got the follow-up wrong.
   May-17-23 D Tomic vs F Winzbeck, 1993
Korora: "To consecrate" does seem to work. What about promotion to Rook? "To fledge"?
   May-16-23 Colle vs Gruenfeld, 1926 (replies)
Korora: "I'm the operator/With my pocket Colle-culator..."
   May-11-23 Pillsbury vs A J Conen, 1899
Korora: <The Louisville Slugger is the brand name of a baseball bat. It's a retail product you can buy.> It's named in honor of Pete Browning, who was one of the Louisville Colonels' best players, dubbed the "Louisville Slugger" in his day.
   May-11-23 H E Atkins vs H Jacobs, 1915 (replies)
Korora: Message from M. Philidor. Something about a legacy.
   May-11-23 Showalter vs Lasker, 1892 (replies)
Korora: <Lasker makes a rare blunder <31...Rdd8> giving Showalter the game.> So I can honestly say I have played like Lasker. ;รพ
