You made an 8-move conditional ? I'm impressed. qt must have been amazed to lose the entire game on conditional moves alone.
Egad! (I guess poor White would have to laugh to keep from crying).
The lines are pretty forcing, for the most part. For example, he has to take the gambit pawn, then I attack it twice so he must defend. Then it's a check, so he has to play Nd2. After ...Qe7, he finally gets a choice. I just happened to guess correctly with a2-a3. From that point, I set up maybe three conditional branches that all end in the same way.
Very nice game :) (for Black anyways!) :)
I should also point out that the Budapest Gambit is really strong against higher-rated players. In the main line, it succeeds in trading off all the pieces very early. There just isn't enough difference or enough pieces for White to win against careful, slow play. Works like a charm for getting a draw.
However, if White just returns the pawn and gets development instead, it can be very dangerous for Black. I have yet to run into anyone OTB that knows this opening, though.
Lol, the mother of Budapest traps, and all conditional. I'm gonna put a link to this in the Budapest group.
BTW, even groups in vote chess fall for this:
I won't be challenging ChessSoldier anytime soon until I study the game... unusally opening to what I am familiar with and nice game!
Wow, a smothered mate with a discovered pin.
I'm just waiting till the day I see a crosscheckmate. Something like this:
The amazing thing is conditional moves, from the staring position, up to mate.
I think it's a one in a million shot...
Yowzer, that's a real qt.
I have won exactly like that before with Black. Not on conditional moves though. I actually made the moves myself...
what a hard puzzle that was, tonydal. My hands are now all tired after all the effort.
All conditional game LOL... but you're a diamond member or w/e. Doesn't that mean you get unlimited lines (i.e. as many conditional variants) as you want?
Just showing Eebster's crosscheckmate (it wasn't intended to make you sweat). :)
I can't imagine the reaction.
www.thechesswebsite.com has one of a video showing that trap. On the site it says this is called the Kieninger trap, but I'm not sure if it's actually called that.
I'm just waiting till the day I see a crosscheckmate.
Crosscheckmating is a penalty...
