The game yesterday is making me wonder if a study with both pawns unmoved might be possible, which would be even more impressive. 100 Engames You Must know has a position like this, which he says is a win for White: Find some way to put whites king on a bad square too, and I'll hail you as a genius...

Re: Events Missing from the July 2012 Grading List

Re: Grading timetable

Hi Christopher - I'm sure Richard will correct/confirm, but as far as I know the new July grades will be released at the same time as the games/results processed from now until the deadline in July.
