    Elubas if the point you were trying to make was that an extra piece won't win a game in itself unless you follow up with good play--why not say that rather than a statement which was obviously untrue?

    Well, I thought the statement was true, and preferred to word it that way as it emphasizes making use of the piece. To just say "follow up with good play" is something we all hear and is less specific than I wanted. If the falseness of the statement caused a lot of disturbances for you, I apologize.

    We may disagree on a lot of things, but it's almost as if you want to create even more arguments. I'm not sure why, but in any case, I'm not really interested in the argument of the precise correctness of my statement -- I'll give the victory to you on that one if you want it.

    Since I have myself won games several different ways it had to be untrue and I do not think I am the only person to have won games more than one way.

    You do not understand that there are many ways to win a chess game?

    Andy, it was certainly not an unwise bet of yours. But this semantics issue is too trivial even for me!

    Your statement is false and very misleading.

    You can only win a game one way- checkmate, time-out, resignation, etc. Since I have myself won many games in each of these ways, it had to be untue that you can win a game more than one of these ways. I do not think I am the only person who has won a game these ways.

    Do you not understand this simple truth? Why are you trying to lie to everyone and assign bad motives and kick puppies?

    Well i think resignation is fine..I don't mind opponents resigning,i'm sure it just means  they lost..although i just hope there is  big points of penalty for them.

    What i can not stand is opponents who asking for DRAW , like in the middle of the their loosing game..?  hmmm..i know i don't have to accept it..but it's kinda irritating.

    Yes, wait till they grow up (or at least age long enough) to be yappy rat dogs and then kick them!

    Ivandh, you are really funny! Laughing You state you can only win a game in one way and then give three ways to win a game!  Laughing

    Ah, now you are modifying the wrong thing you said. You say there are three ways to win games, but a game can only be won in one way at a time! Why do you hate Santa?

    I hate Santa because he looks stupid.  You are adding the phrase "at a time"Laughing

    Oh this is going to hurt!

    You might not like Santa because maybe he tried to kiss your Mom. Something to that song "I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus"

    Now for the big that most people do not know he does the rest of the year. Now hold on to your chairs. Santa Claus has a dirty secret. Ok i how do  i break the news. Ok...... Santa Claus is a pimp. He wears red and always saying Ho Ho Ho. And not buying all that talk about reindeers. Well you figure it out as it this point something sounds fishy about Rudolf. Ok you might debate that. But he has us bringing the stores money. We are talking about the 2nd Santa Claus here.

    What he has conceded territory? Antarctica? Must be do to the climate or want us to go there and enjoy all that cold. He surrenders the Bahamas then we talking something good. Anyway it appears The Resistance has gained some ground over The Alliance.

    "the statement" , The conditional statement you created to satisfy a situation. The 2 Rooks case is lost for an opponent and you try to twist it around to win a point by talking off the topic. Just say next time that the value of a Rook is 5 pts and ask me to agree. Different statement but same strategy that you are using here. As the value of the rook has nothing to due with Resigning.

    I see your Vector changed when you went into a territory that was going to get you buried. Your best move so far.

    Hey stay out the BINGO hall at the Senior Citizen Home.

    "Sonny either you got Bingo or not, if not i am going to collect and we can get another game in. I do not have all day and no time to waste at this age sonny. This the 2nd time you did this. Now i am a pieceful person i going to have to take my cane and put your over my knee and whup you with it."

    See this is what happens when you prolong a lost situation.
