Well what is interesting is instead of Nh4, Nxe5 with the center fork trick for white. I think this would be good, because white would get a huge center and easy piece play out of it. I didn't look through the whole game yet, but it is just what I see right away. It isn't winning, just an improvement. Always be aware of that :)
I just now saw that possibility he had, but I was playing Black.
I didn't even consider that.
Actually if he taken the pawn with his knight.
I would have taken the Knight with my Knight.
So far he is ahead a pawn and lost a Knight.
Black pushes the D pawn for the fork.
I retreat my Bishop and he gains a Knight back.
I take the E pawn attacking his queen. I gain my pawn.
So the exchange would have been even.
Thanks for the comment. I missed that combination.
I have to stay more alert.
You do stay even, but white gets your central pawn
You are right. In this game the E pawn does play a great roll at the end game Keeping the king at bay right next to my Bishop.
A conditional move here is where player x inputs a possible move of yours say 1.e4 and then his responce say e5
this can be really useful if you have a forced mate or something.
Thanks for the explanation. This was my first game ever on a team. Let's see if I understand what you said.
After move 29. c3 in above game, I knew I had a mate.
. . . F6+ 30. KG3 RG6+ 31. KH4 RG4# mate.
What would I put in the conditional move since I knew there was a forced mate?
What is the purpose of it?
To have him resign?
A conditionl move is yourcalling his next move,you can make your next move,over and over as long as you keep getting his move right
The longest I have done is three moves to a mate. I like the conditional move as it responds quickly and the opponent can respond right away without having to wait 3 or five days.
But I don't like that if it results in a forced mate, I don't get the sense that I made the moves and see the actual checkmate. Of course that is a minor detail.
Thanks for the comment.
