That was a helluva gambit with the bishop, knight pair Barman!


Was hardly a gambit, no matter my move it payed off. Lets get this straight people I saw the pin on my king a mile off, but had I moved my queen instead of the knight, while my queen would have survived, it would have cost three other officers in the following moves. In all, lossing my queen was the strongest move I could have made.

When I'm a queen down? Don't see it happening tongue.gif However, I'd have resigned by now if I wasn't hoping.

Mmm, I feel the comeback may be on the horizon, points wise I'm only 4 ahead, more than enough to bring it level.

It's all a gamble that paid off really, I was going for an early queen swap which would have left Talon unable to castle, I thought that would give me the advantage. Then when that was thwarted I squealed like a girl (no offence girls) and kept him in check till I could escape.

After viewing the game history and contemplating future moves, I have come to the conclusion that this game is far from 'over'. no.gif

Looking at the scoreboard now... best I can reach is 4th place if the universe drops things in my favor...
