Why am I still here?

Craig Evans  Wednesday, April 4, 2018

"I mean, come on... no-one is reading these anymore. It was funny the first few times, maybe, but really we need to come up with something new at this point. People aren't going to keep submitting games to be torn apart by a patzer with no chess knowledge or education, and... wait, I've just had something through..."

Today's game features two heavyweights of the UK Correspondence world's admin department; our very own Article-smith (and Top 3 player within his household), Russell Sherwood, against the long-time English stalwart and legend, Ian M Pheby.

The game is a lifeless, drab affair, with pointless shuffling, little suggestion of a plan or attacking inten... oh sorry, I forgot that we're not featuring Mr Yeo this month. This game is bizarre, far too complicated for engines to understand, and therefore the only option is to wheel out a patzer (yours truly) to give it a casual once-over and then make vague, ill-considered judgements on it. Well, here goes nothing.
