Pawns and the Avon Lady

Post by Geoff Chandler » Wed Jul 24, 2013 11:06 am

Picked up dirt cheap a digial camera/vid recorder on Monday.
Did this on Tuesday.

It's only 1 minute long.

Can you do this with these 'live boards?'

He he , I liked it but for one thing.....the configuration of the knights, I wanted to reach in and turn their heads forward
Lose one queen and it is a disaster, Lose 1000 queens and it is just a statistic.

Made me smile Geoff, now if I could just remember that variation you were playing? I also see you were not playing touch move!

Hi Ian

It is of course the Elizabethan Serenade Variation first played by Binge.

I may do it again one day, the c-pawn was out of tune.

-------------

Had no idea Ronald Bing compsed the Elizabethan Serenade in 1951 (the year I was born)
I have of course the Reggae version.

He also composed 'Sailing By' (The Shipping Forecast Theme...I did not know that either.)
which I have on my walkman/mp3 playing thing.
(the gadget that plays music whilst you are on a bus so you cannot the hear the inane yik-yak from people on their mobiles.)
