I'm Just A Donkey Blues

Ever since my credibility left me,
I've had a sad tale to tell
I'd blame it on my woman
But it was a bot that gave me hell.


Last month at Gammon Village I posted the "Singing The Blues Quiz," a set of problems from the Chicago Open. Last week Phil Simborg wrote to me, saying that one of his students had rolled out a couple of my positions, and his answers did not match mine. There was, it turns out, a reason for that: my answers were wrong. It seems that I misread XG, and had the wrong player on roll. Since then, I have heard from others, and I'd like to thank Max Levenstein, Phil Simborg, Xavier Dufaures de Citres, and Stick Rice for their help, in bringing the problems to my attention, offering assistance in resolving my issues with XG, and for valuable feedback on the problems themselves.
