maybe they are in looneyville Gavinator. the problem with this logic is that in Matrix chess Rooks are also worth two and this is completely false. the reason is it takes two bishop's assisted to mate where as it takes only one rook assisted to mate.
This guy (Parham) got to an master level putting all pieces except the queen on 2 points?
The Parham attack must be devastating.
@post 839 lol playing for an endgame are we.
all of these are logical moves and everything gives white an advantage.
I'd prefer 4. Nxe4 but whatever floats your boat.
White doesn't have an initiative if he plays 4.Nxe4.
Nevermind, missed the pawn fork.
I am but a noob.
Yeah 4. Nxe4 is instant equality. 5 ...Be7 is instant equality and none of the sharp stuff in this opening (This is Frankenstein-Dracula mainline). I am currently on the white side of a FD in a Vote Chess game that we are losing. Bummer.
I didn't realize that it was the Frankenstein-Dracula. Wow.
You know that JF meant a lone bishop cannot FORCE mate, while a rook is sufficient.
"it takes two bishop's assisted to mate"
Jetfighter is just freakin dumb. I think he might be the same person as Christiansoldier.
Yes I know that, what does that have to do with anything? Stop trolling me bro
You really struggle to remain rational don't you Gavin? I'm amazed we're trying to have discussion with some kid that calls himself the gavinator obsessed with a Gadaffi look alike who reckons vectors have a use in chess. Enlighten us how does black force mate below?
No I showed what he said, jetfighter is just stupid.
They can't, how dumb are you.
If they can't wtf is wrong with jetfighers statement.
No it doesn't.
I know, but 1 bishop can give mate too.
You fail to understand the game of chess is not a cooperative affair. The mate you showed earlier cannot be forced. Therefore, jetfighters statement that two bishops in cooperation with a king are needed to force mate is completely valid.
He never said force now did he?
#2 is Anand now!
