3026: You can not decide if the next position is legal or not?
3027: you can not decide in that position who is to move.
3028: you can not decide what is the result of this game.
3028: The result is stalemate or checkmate if white moves. So if you can't decide the result of the game you don't not know enough about chess. To make that statement you previously made and say if you can't decide the result you don't know enough about chess proves you don't know enough about chess because you said if you can't decide the result then you don't know enough about chess and if you can decide the result then you don't not know enough about chess, which is what your statement implies, which is the opposite of how it should be proving you don't know enough about chess as I have already just proved twice.
It is a stalemate. The last move must be a capture of a black piece/pawn by either the white king or a white knight. The black king can't move for some moves already, hence had to be there a black piece/pawn on the board. The last move in this game was therefor a white move. Now is it blacks turn and he can't make a legal move. Hence it is stalemate. The position is legal by the way. The last moves could have been for instance
67... Nh8-g6 68.Nb6-c8 Ng6-e7 69.Nc8xe7 or
99... d4-d3+ 100.Ke2xd3
3029 (in order to keep this thread going to reach 5000)
Upon seeing two people playing chess you ask the question: "What is the difference between checkers and chess?"
(this btw was an actual comment i heard from a 20-something young lady who observed a game a friend and i was playing)
3030 Whadddt? Chess? Didn't you mean cheese? Cheese is surely E zee er.
3031 - The King, Queen, Bishop and Knight is on the board. Where is the Joker?
3032. You know how to move the pieces, and think that qualifies for knowing how to actually play chess.
3033. Flipping a coin to see if white or black moves first.
3034. Chess? Is that a new makeup brand? Ohhdarling. Does it go with my Jimmy Choos? And my doggie woggie? And my Luis Vitton handbag?
3035. Chess? Oh no, that is too difficult for me. Can't we do something nice?
3036. The queen has the capability to make a knight move, right?
3037. Castling is when you advance a pawn to the eighth rank to get crowned.
3038. you think castling is the same as car selling.
3039. You think that a castling is some kind of halfling.
3040 - Your grandmother wins or draws four out of five games against your play.
3041 - Your seven year old neice hesitates to play you OTB because she fears boredom.
3042: You think that the chess clock is a launcher.3043: You purposely lose on time so that you don't have to show how bad you are.
3044: You move your your pieces to I file when you're frustrated.
3045: You resign before you play your first move because you know need to go to the bathroom.
3046: You expect you opponent to resign.
3047: you take the queen.
#3048 when you play a move that you think is good then your oppent belittles you with his responce.
