Thanks for the game.  I thought you had spotted the little trap I had for a while.  In future, remember that Rooks are powerful pieces and no one just gives them up for no reason.  If you see someone letting you take their rook for free, check and see what they're hiding first (if they are hiding something - you may occasionally get a player who just misses seeing it)!

Group D
cryptidcontrol timed out in both games against me (KarlisUM), thus losing both games.
Sorry that he chose not to play.

In that case I think we can discount cryptidcontrol from the running as well, meaning that Group D has now completed all its games. You had some bad luck with players not moving in that group.

That leaves us with groups B, E and F left to decide who goes through to the next round.

Rooks are the knights, right ? Btw, I am loving the fact that you are willing to give me some pionters here. I not just only appriciate it , but in the past when i first was taught by some very respected friends , they would teach me as they won of course. Thing is they taught me and paced the game giving me pionters when i didnt see them. I have played strangers as well and some did the same thing. Mind you these were face to face chessboard games. I have tried to inncorporate this influence on friends that are interested in learning the game. E used to play all the time from 16-25 years old. It wasnt until 5 years or so ago I started playing the computer . I only know one person I recently met and weve gone to starbucks and im teaching him how to play. I know im not the greatest chess player but advice from more advanced players is very cool way , to me, give the game itself the respect it derseves because we can always advance in life stratigies, and chess does that. Just wish i could play more literal boardgames with mentors like when i first learned. I still have allot of questions about the game. Thank you for sharing information nost people wouldnt, unless of course they love the game to that point of giving its honor to educate less experienced players. So thanks again for paying it forward as far as  trying to help me become a better player.

At least we were able to play this year it was fun and best of luck and skill as you move up to the final games ahead in this tournament.

No worries, Abercrombie.  Glad I could help.  You're right, face-to-face games do make it easier to talk about the move and where you could have moved better, but it's hard to do that online.  

For the record, the Rooks are those pieces that start in the corners - they look like corners of castles, and sometimes people call them Castle.  But their real name is Rook.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't know all the pieces by their proper names. I call Rooks... Castles as well, and I keep calling Knghts...Horses  laugh.gif Well at least I know which way all the pieces move in order to play the game  grin2.gif
