I did not see that coming at ALL. Nice Talon.


[edit]
Thanks, although still not good enough. Good game though.

I only saw it myself when you moved that Bishop and I was thinking were I should go, then you moved the knight and I thought 'bingo'.

Nah, I was going to try and take that wing pawn with my queen then trade a rook for the knight, then capture the bishop you'd take my knight with with my queen.

mleh, what the fudge, I'm not really interested in the tournament, but I'll have a friendly game if anyone's interesting....

Bear in mind, I havn't played chess in a long, long, long, long, long, long, long time...so don't play me if you're a good player looking for a challenge, you probably won't get one tongue.gif I'll make amatuerish mistakes, and probably lose by the end of things.
