I am just thinking out loud here, would people be interested in an on-going chess league? Similar to EFL. The tournament can be like the FA Cup?

@danydandan   jeezus where did you come up with that move?!  you just left the complexity factor at warp 3!  A good move requires a thoughtful response.

A chess league...?  hmmm, not sure that many in here play at a serious level. But who knows

I'm not sure if that's insulting or complementary.lol

It's the only move I could see that would let me keep my Queen for at least another 5-6 moves, without moving it and we need to exchange some captures.

I think that move is my only viable option. I like me rooks and queen where they are.

Am I in trouble?

Why am I asking. Of course I am, playing four games in a week and reading articles on Chess for two days, a chess master makes me not!

"Oh, Dany boyyyyy", yes, a very ripe position has erupted.  Where did @AtlantisRises  go off to? He's got me good now

I am not very good at pawn endgames so don't be so sure.

Appreciate the resignation but I think you still had at least drawing chances.

LOL, no, I don't think so. You had me for sure. I'd have taken my pawn at c4 long ago, but hey, you had all kinds of ways.

I had a nice active centralized bishop. 

Your doubled C-Pawns were a positional weakness. Something I could attack any time and it made your bishop more or less useless. 

I knew there was a good chance of heading towards a king and pawn ending if we traded down aggressively and in that situation doubled and isolated pawns become difficult for you to defend.

True enough. But I haven't played chess in quite a long time and it is good to stick to the principles that I know works at least until I have cleaned some of the rust off. There will be no brilliancy prizes for a little while yet.

What the hell @Earl.Of.Trumps I wasn't expecting that move. I'll need to think a bit.

Take your time!   I conked out real early last night. Just getting up for a while here, likely be back down soon.

 

PS: as you can see, I figured how to use the "conditional move" feature.  Bravo me, eh?
