Tim. I read your excellent Thematic Exchange Spanish a quarter century ago so thanks again.

Time for me to dig up my Knight Pairs.
Thanks Nick - you may be interested in my 123-move game from yesterday's 4NCL:

Is that 123-move game available in PGN form, a weary game-inputter asks?

It should be at the 4NCL website soon - meanwhile, my post gives all the moves, but with commentary:

I suppose I didn't make my reason for asking clear, did I? :)

Sorry, I'm clearly being dense - were you inputting the games at Maidenhead?

No, I co-ordinate the efforts to get the games played across the 4NCL on the website. I was at Daventry and all of those are done, but someone else gets Division 3s/4s online a bit later. The person keying them in would presumably quite appreciate not having to key in a 123-mover. :)

I have to admit I did make rather a meal of winning the ending - the engines keep flashing mate-in-12-to-15 moves whatever I played
