Dear friends,

While browsing through the net I stumbled upon your site and found myself thrilled to find so much information about Chess that I can virtually spend a great deal of time learning new things about the game that I love very much.

I just wanted to let you know that there are some people like me that really appreciate your effort in building a website so vast, outstanding, and very easy to navigate in.

A few weeks ago, I visited a page about Chess players and found a mate in one carved in the grave of Jacques Davidson (1890-1969). He was a Dutch Chess master.

It seems to me that it's a mate in two moves, not in one.

Do you agree?

Thank you.
Gonzalo M.

Dear viewer,

The position carved in the gravestone is correct: mate in one move.
