    not a bad looking set👍, Mike😊 - the Knights ♞ look like a Morphy design?

    That is a really really nice set.  I know chess is not like golf but I can't help thinking my game would be elevated with a set like this.   Much like golf, though, my wife says I don't really need that sort of elevation. :-)

    Well, as I found out when I played golf - it may not elevate my game but I would certainly look good while blundering ... tongue.png

    Thanks lofina, The knights have a Jaques flavor, but good question as to what Jaques Knight they are most similar to.

    Thanks Moriarty, no question the Havana set would raise anybody's game.

    Good point Rick, an EXCLAIM! for blundering with the Havana set
