Hello there Chess.com!
I started playing chess 3 days ago, and decided to create an account here on Chess.com.
I love the concept of online chess, but unfortunently, my internet shuts down from time to time, in long time periods, disabling me from my world of virtual chess :(.
But I found a solution. A so called "chess buddy" freeware downloadable directly from Chess.com, called Fritz 5.32.
And I must say, he really is a chess buddy, with capital B. Here's what happened:
I opened it and started playing a game with this buddy.
After a few moves, the game suddently locks up, and an infobox appears, reading "mate!". I guess he was trying to cheer me up, after all, my position was pretty bad, and I was down an officer, but now I was unable to move!
How can he be my chess buddy, when he mocks me, by calling me mate, and then locking up the game? Any ideas?
Actually is from the guaranies indians. And that drink is very common in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay as well.
