Just a Crazy Line from the Ruy Lopez me and my coach discovered in coaching!
spot the checkmate
Too bad that 17.Kd2 is book, and winning for White (e.g. Kritz- Golod, Biel 2010).
17. Kd2 17...Qxe4 or Qg2+
How do you know what my level is?
Your rating is 1514. That's not very high. Of course, I can't boast about my own rating either, but..
Can't one get an idea about a player's strength by looking at his games?
you don't know that I have played internationally before though do you??
eleanor-the-great made perfectly clear that (s)he shares this line with us just for the fun of it, so why care about the rating?
it's not really theory we were just analysing the Ruy Lopez and some how this just came up I'm quite an agressive player
can I just mention that's no ones spotted the checkmate yet:)
Well, there are just two reasonable checks available- one of them should be mate, right?
20...b7#t, helpful & nice!
not b7# but close:)
b6 maybe? :)
yeah obvious really
lol...yes, that certainly slams the door on the IM!
sorry the game wasn't to everyone's taste.
