    I think Eats_Mice just focused to much on the mate, causing him to overlook the obvious.

    Agree completely.  @TheMiceEater was focused on "the hole in the doughnut," instead of just winning the game, safely.  His loss.

    As per Anatoly Karpov, in his new book, Find the Right Plan, (2010) -- the Fundamental Law of Chess is -- "to restrict the mobility of your opponents pieces" (direct quote).

    And don't lose, too.  Smile

    Looks like this party will not end till the mate is found.

    I like it.

    @Bicarb has already provided "the solution."

    Are you too lazy to actually read this thread, @YourRoyalAssBishop?

    No surprises there.

    Exactly.

    If you have to choose between maybe mate in x and an easy major advantage, it's often best to keep it simple. Mate (or resignation) will follow anyway.

    Always play with (at least) a 5 second bonus.

    You will rarely run out of time, unless the Queen's are still on the board, or you haven't gotten out of the middlegame.

    Endgame knowledge can be implemented rather quickly, in most cases.  That's all @MiceyMan needed to do.  Smile

    Of course, although a major material and positional advantage usually makes it possible to move almost instantly. And in this case they had 7 days per move...

    Nah, some of us simply won't suffer fools gladly.

    It's just a character flaw, that we need to work on.  Smile

    It's ok. I don't need to prove myself to anyone. I just wanted to find that mate.
