How does thy save thyself?

    Interesting.  Is that assumed from reading the Bible?  The traditional KJB is in Elizabethan English, but it wasn't written until after King James was crowned, which wasn't until after Elizabeth I died.  I'm not sure why they call it Elizabethan English, but it's probably due to the large rise in drama in here time, especially Shakespeare.  It might also have to do with the changes in English during the Renaissance and things like Shakespeare's works were during the reign of Elizabeth.

    If the bf4 or bg3 on move 23, then the ironic 24.Bh5+ blocking the discover check with your own discover check looks to be poisonous.
