Dave said that 2 pawns on the 7th rank win nearly every time.
Rainbow Rising disagreed strongly, saying Idiot. 2 pawns on the 7th rank Vs rook win EVERY TIME, no matter whose move it is, or where the rook is (capitalisation his own).
Thanks to Nytik, we now have 2 examples of how Dave was right and RR was wrong. And Nytik's is a better one - as no pawn even promotes so RR is wrong even on his own bizarre terms.
And yet, after being proved wrong, RR insists he is right as people should go in with his bizarre definition of a win (as I demonstrated - the aim of chess in RR's mind is apparently to promote pawns, not to checkmate the opponent's king, Dave should have realised this and he is an "idiot" for not doing so). Next he'll say that by "EVERY TIME" he meant "nearly every time". But Dave will still be an "idiot", I'm sure.
And then he creates threads complaining of other people's arrogance?
You still dont understand the terminology win.
Even if queening one of the pawns is a "win" is the pawns aren't connected, then it doesn't matter if you have four pawns on the 7th rank
they can cover every square on an empty chess board
