    King sacrifices

    Like. Can you help to sacrifice my King? It's already in poor condition.

    Actually, the king of Sweden could use some sacrificing. That's a sacrifice that would definitely serve the greater good. Throw in the rest of the royal family while you're at it, alright?

    You wiener, that is cheating !!! No help of electronic tools allowed. :-)

    But I don't know how to play.

    I am a positional player. I always take care to position my chair properly. I also try to put my king hidden behind the other pieces so that the opponent won't notice it. It's all part of a long term strategy.

    i'm not even close to having a specialty, still looking to slowly improve.

    there's a series of books by seierwan (sp??) and silman that I have found really helpful. covering strategry, tactics, openings, everything. Very clearly written.

    I specialize in imparting wisdom.  It's best if the impartees have no clue what they are hearing, that way they learn by osmosis.  For instance, when players were analyzing an ending and went into a variation that required a long calculation, I nodded knowingly and said, "The longest journey begins with a single step," turned, and walked away.

     

     

    You're welcome!

    That was pretty funny!

    Let me just impart the knowledge that the phrase you quoted is a variation of the most famous line from Tao Te Ching, written some 2500 years ago

    Hey, I just impart the wisdom, I don't write it all.

    Besides, Tao's copyright expired.  The only copyright that can last 1000 years or more is that of a cartoon mouse who donates regularly to politicians.

    That mouse's company is trying to brainwash the little kids. I's a seen it with my own two eyes.

    I don't always learn by osmosis, but when I do, I drink chesswater.
