BTW I think a lot of people would agree with your principle of being against trading for the sake of it, just not how you expressed it (which you admit probably wasn't the best use of words).
i thought he expressed it beautifully
Yeah but you're an ass.
i'm crying now
I meant it in the best possible way...Anna's words?
"waaaah" or is it "meuuuuuw" ?
Surprised you took offense to that, was only kidding.
Now now no need to fight because me.
Theres been so many people purposly trying to distort what ive been attempting to explain its no wonder he doesnt belive i explained it well.
Youve been here from the start like, so youve seen all this stuff thrown at me.
It was only the term suicide that I didn't think was the best way to express it (which I thought you admitted anyway).
wha offense ?
no offense here officeresses!
The offense displayed above.
Anyway, never mind don't want to take the thread off topic (god forbid).
Oh right, i dont wanna change the word suicide.
Cause like 9/11 for example like i used in the opening post.
Definetly suicide. It didnt build up to anything else advantageous.
The guy i commented on about when i used the word suicide in the opening post, i belive he trying to say the game still goes on and suicide sudgests its over (a draw). In that sence i dont disagree.
However to not use the word suicide sudgests all exchanges of any kind are advantageous. I was attempting to express my negativity towards the action in apose to a sacrafice for a greater cause. (this is just me trying to make sence of my subconscious, sounds about right.)
isn't there always an advantage for someone in trading? I usually trade pieces when I feel that my oponent's piece has a better position than what can I get or simply to remove that piece protecting a square that I plan to attack later.
I always try to trade weakness for strenght in a game, isn't that the whole point? (honest question, not rhetorical, I'm trying to learn the game)
What the [removed by mod - language] does 9/11 has to do with chess?
The guy i comented on about when i used the word suicide i belive he trying to say the game still goes on and suicide sudgests its over. In that sence i dont disagree.
You are missing the point completely still.
'Definitely suicide. It didn't build up to anything advantageous.'
We have told you a number of ways it could easily be advantageous to that player at any given time. Material / Positional advantage is all that you are considering. Mental advantage, comfort level, players ability is being ignored in the example.
'Suicide' is most definitely the incorrect term. Not in the sense that the game would be over, I know you didn't mean that, in the sense that they are not trading material for no advantage. Just because you don't see it on the board doesn't mean it does not aide their play mentally.
He's comparing chess.com showing quick games in which players make equal looking trades with people celebrating 9/11.
Hey Imperfect_Luck, when and where did you identify a move from a game that supports your conclusions?
Anyone care to give him some advice on this?
Im still in awe of how easily this vid explained what took over 500 posts with under 10 people who even seemed to slightly share my view.
Please watch the vid
