And also one more thing.
If your king was checked and there's only one place to move it, well you have to move it. Don't waste time.

Don't be scared of what you cannot see, your only fear is possibility,
never wondered what the hell went wrong,  your second chance may never come along.
Hold on now your exits here, it's waiting just for you,
don't pause too long its fading now, its ending all too sooooon,
you'll see. ~pete murray~

Well, guys, I'm done playing for right now. hmm.gif  I have to go get a bigger chess set so I can try to figure out a way to get away from Talon.  (The big meanie has me in a corner and he's stalking my poor queen and trying to get rid of my bishop so he can promote one of his pawns so he'll have two queens and  . . . and . . . crying.gif)

Aw, Subby! sad.gif

Reminds me of a Hagar the Horrible cartoon.  Hagar's telling his son about his favorite daydream.  He's all alone, defending Norway.  Against him are ranged all sorts of famous warriors, Ceasar, Attilla the Hun, Hannibal with his elephants, Alexander the Great, etc.  All of them are backed by mighty armys.  As they stand facing each other, Ceasar raises his hand for silence and tells his cohorts:

"We'll attack as soon as our reinforcements arrive!"

I started a game with you Scip, pretty well through my tourney matches so I think I can afford to have a fun game (not that the tourney games aren't fun of course)

I know, Saru.  I'm playing six games right now and probably at least two of them will be done by tomorrow.  I just had to step back and think about the board for a bit.  Talon had me in a corner, only after I slept on it, it turns out I had him in a corner. <G>

(So now, if he wins anyway, I'm gonna look EXTRA lame! no.gif)

I think you perhaps need to revise your definition of what any given game is about....by its very definition, it's an means of competition huh.gif Recreational yes, but at the end of the day it's still about competition. There's very little difference between a friendly game, and one to decide if you're actually as good as you're cracking yourself up to be.

No, at the end of the day you forget about it.
I said i was a good player but i didn't said i was the best.
What's wrong giving tips to novice player ?
Is there a safer place to hide on this forum ?
Maybe i'll go next on writers hangout.
It must be quiet there.

That doesn't make it "not competition".   If your not planning on being competitive, you wouldn't be playing chess would you?
