    You think the four move checkmate is sneaky.

    You have to remember "white on right" and "queen on her color" to set up a board correctly.

    I've never heard of "white on right" before. And I never even realized that checkmate could be achieved in four moves until I joined this website.

    In fact, most of what you said I don't even know about.

    Technically, the fastest checkmate is 1.f3 e5 2.g4 Qh4#.

    So, to add someting to the list, "You know you're a bad chess player if you can loose a game in 2 moves". (Which I've already done in Live chess).

    I am now in shock and awe at how quickly checkmate can be achieved.

    But that still leaves one question: what does 'white on right' mean.

    - Your opponent laughs tentatively after you double jump their knight and bishop with your pawn and declare "king me!"

    Well this settles it:

    Next time I promote a pawn, I'm declaring 'Queen Me'!

    I just laughed so hard at this.

    Everyone is a bad chess player. Not one game of chess in the history of man or computer was without errors.

    I thought a game without errors would lead to a draw, and definitely not a win for black?

    Nope, wrong.  Chess is actually solved as a win for black, as another famous game between world champions with no errors proves:

    Chess is solved as a win for black?

    No, it isn't. I think he was joking. But it isn't solved as a draw, either; that's what it would mean if you could prove that perfect play leads to a draw.

    As far as I know, chess is a very long way from being solved.

    I'm sure RD was joking.

    You still think two dimensional chess is hard.

    Tongue out Now, wait a minute! Those Fischer-Spassky and Kramnik-Topalov games are not error-less games! In each game, White forfeited. I'd call that an error! SurprisedSmile

    Nice saying.

    1) You 'analyse' games by simply playing through the moves, and refuse to try any variations in case you forget what the position was.

    2) You insist on showing your games to stronger players, but refuse to listen to their advice.

    3) You think the easiest way to draw with a stronger player is to swap as many pieces off as you can.

    4) You try to cling on in strategically lost positions rather than playing for counterplay.

    Shouldn't games that have less errors be mostly draws?

    You lose a game without a single piece or pawn being taken.

    You resign because they took your favorite pawn.

    • You were disappointed to learn instead of moving one pawn two squares, you can't move two pawns, one square.
    • In addition to the usual chessboard notation, you have "left" and "right."
    • You only use smiley faces to annotate your games.
    • All of your pawns have first names.

    To assess the position you count the taken pieces at the side of the board
