Netherlands, Bussum, Jan. 2008

Apart from my quite recent Photography hobby (since 2004), I have two other hobbies (since 1953): Mathematics and Chess. Mathematics did also become my job, so that is not a true, free-time hobby. Hence my entry for My Hobby Friday deals with Chess.
The above picture shows the first and only set of chess pieces I possess (since 1953), a beautiful chessboard with pearl-shell inlay which we bought in Damascus in 2001, and the final position of the game by which I won the Dutch Correspondence Chess Championship in 2004.

That is a beautiful chess set ... and it's in a wonderful room!
Jan 19 2008 09:05 GMT senna3
That is right James!
In all lines, white's h-pawn will be captured by the bishop at d7 and then white cannot prevent the promotion of a black pawn.
Jan 19 2008 09:10 GMT senna3
Yes I noticed Poulet and he does possess a terrific set of chess pieces!
