That's checkmate @joc!

Good game.

Edit: I should have won that. That's what I get for being single minded.

Well...you should have seen that move...because...I was sweating all the options if you took my rook with the pawn...seriously sweating!  

Oblivious to the Obvious.   That's been my downfall all along!

I was too focused on your Queen, completely missed the Rook. Which I only seen before my last move. I was expecting you to pull your Queen back, that didn't happen!

I have spaces available if anyone who hasn't beaten me yet wants to try. I've played Joc, Saru, Atlantis, Pettytalk and am currently playing Ozy. Whom ever is left can challenge me when they are able.

Anybody else in a game with NukeUM? We have two games going at the moment but he hasn't moved in 5 days. In his last post here [p.19, Post #443] he xplained that he had internet connection problems and is also possibly snowed-in. He is in danger of timing out on his games with me. 

Can anyone advise me? Can I put the games on hold? Or refuse a victory on a time out? Or do we start new games all over again when he turns up?

PS: In view of this situation I can accept a new challenge to play from any other tourney competitor who is free and so inclined. Send me a challenge.

You can just leave them you have to claim a timeout victory, which you have to instigate. So if you choose to leave them they will not timeout on their own. I think!

Ah! OK, Dan. I'll just sit tight so until he shows and carry on from where we left off. Thanks. :)

Shouldn't be playing on your phone in your car. Lesson learned I hope.

Even at a red light is illegal to touch your phone in Australia.

Yes. We do have them. They are slowly disappearing as the big supermarket bottle shops drive them out however.

Thankfully, Texas finally passed a law a few years ago that outlawed texting and driving.  It allows for GPS and texting at a red light...which I usually don't do anyway.  I don't even like talking on a phone.  This was a long traffic light...anyway...the lesson is learned...NEVER play chess on my phone.

When I came online this morning I figured today would be the last day of our game. I've been fighting you off for quite a while and knew I couldn't do that for much longer.  You losing your queen like that is a godsend for me, but I know how frustrated you must feel. That was terribly bad luck on your part joc, sorry.

It is frustrating!  But...you know...life...is a chess game.  Lessons to be learned as AR noted.   Don't take your eyes off of the road...Don't take your eyes off of the board...Never underestimate your opponent...Never overestimate yourself.

Another life lesson...something our Grandfather used to tell us...it takes a lifetime to build a good reputation...it takes 15 seconds to destroy it.  I put a lot of time and effort into keeping your queen trapped!  One stupid move and ....poof...all that gone!  I love chess! :)

I have no games going in the tournament at the moment I haven't played @-Nuke-, @Still Waters or @Liquid Gardens as of yet.

One game left to play with Ozy. 

I'll be busy tomorrow, so on Sunday if anyone's game for a game let me know and I'll send you a challenge.
