I won as black due to move 8 rule.
LOL! It just doesnt mean anything. Imagine that you play Qh4+ or start sacrificing senseless material to don't allow my king move until move 8, you can't just win because of that. According to jetfighter it is only enough to receive an warning. Meanwhile, by playing f3 I have clear intention to bring my king to f2 which is my next move. That have already happened on some games and no one lost because of that. Maybe 8 "unforced" moves is a better rule, since recaptures of pieces or checks are considered forced moves.
What is the point of rules if they are not inforced? I may as well say that the rule of no checkmate or reaching the other side means nothing. Is inforcing a rule more senseless than punishing me for making moves based on the rules?
I decided to be nice and give everyone one warning considering the time of year, but that is it, only to be nice and fair
Only be nice and fair to me who gave up a developed bishop thinking that the rule set is going to be adheared to? Why cater to the people who break the rules instead of the people who follow them?
It is absolutely unfair to people who follow the rules to change them midgame to help people who break the rules.
888 you do make a good point, I adheared to the Rule, and still lost, I do agree though that Kd8 is not a good developing move, and The next time Xico does this, he will be DQed just like tjchessmaster
I am talking about my other game. I have no issue with the Kd8 game. Look at the link I posted.
no I know full and well what you mean, I am just saying that we all make mistakes, maybe he has the touch move thing, or hasn't read the Update on the OP
Ignorance is not an excuse. By your logic I should not read the OP because then I can do whatever I want. Of course we all make mistakes but the point of chess is that you get punished for them.
What is the point of chess without mistakes?
Then Crush him, He will be punished if he does it again, I do feal I am Being soft, but the reason I did this is because having a game cut short because your opponent did not keep the spirit of the opening is kind of sad. That is my reasoning, I got punished for it by loosing both of mine, but I made a decision, and I won't Back down unless a majority consent to it. That is the important thing about decision making, don't back down unless you have good reason, also Make a decision, right or wrong make a decision.
just my point of view.
you are a chode jet, you really are.
I refuse to partake in this tournament if you don't redact your decision.
When I joined I accepted the posted ruleset. Those rules can't be changed during a game. I will not be punished for following the rules on both principal and for the sake of not being subject to the unfair changing of rules in the future.
Your next response will be taken as your final one on this matter. I will make my decision on it.
kco, just for the rest of this month, will you quit calling me that, I don't want to block anyone
for the record.
only a true chode would quote himself
see, making up rule as going along.
Stop fooling around and make your decision.
888, I think that it is time to make a decision, and I will post my reasons for this.
I retract it for the game you are playing,
because your arguements make sence,
you have helped me out a lot with this,
and well, xiko has stated a few times that he thought the only goal was to get the king to the otherside, even after I had posted the update, so I think he was using it as a safety net.
He loses that game, play out the other one, just out of kindness, and because he followed the rules in that one, even if it was a loophole.
mrguy888 wins his game as Black he will post the link
He followed the rules in the other game. Whether Kd8 is development or not, he moved the king to c7 on move 8.
The link. There is not much to analyze.
d8 counts I think, remember the Psuedo Bongcloud, it features Kd1, sneaking the king around, kind of in the spirit of the opening.
