LOL! Your joke about shooting him reminded me of a routine by John Pinette. Go to 1:09 to hear it directly, his "Coldstone Creamery" bit, it's near the end of his act:
I love stories with a happy ending...
You could have shot him and helped the species by eliminating a source of arrogant ignorance polluting the gene pool
Of course, you would have gone to prison for life, but we all have to make sacrifices, don't we?
You should have played him with the board set up the way he thought it should be - by the sounds of this guy you would have easily won anyway.
I think he did what he wanted to, he got under your skin!
yeah, whatever. when i play against people that are clearly clueless i don't ever take en passant, it's quite a hassle, if you know what i mean... sometimes i don't even castle either.
What's to be gained? The kid obviously didn't know what he was talking about. You were correct, he was clueless...and arrogant...you don't have to "kick his butt"...life will do that.
This, OP shouldve taken one for the team.
I understand your frustration, and better you vent about it on the internet instead of shooting him in the back 6 times, LoL. Fun story.
He set up the board perfectly correct in the 960 style....
In 960 the set up for both sides should be same.
It is the same...
blacks king and queen are in the right position.
White's king and queen are messed up.
In 960 the pieces can be anywhere, that's the whole idea. As long as all the pieces are in identical positions for both parties, it does not matter if one side is correctly set up as per tradition.
In 960, however, the pieces are still set up identically on both sides; aren't they?
but the pieces arn't identical thats waht I told you.
blacks arangement is correct white's isn't.
Yes. My comment was directed at NobbyCapetown.
Am I the only one who sees the 960 merits ? Pieces are set up identically in that in both cases queens are opposite kings and all other pieces are where they should be.
Yes. Are you suggesting that this board is set up by 960 rules? If so, look again. In 960, identical pieces are accross from each other on the board. Here, they are not.
