A skittles game from earlier today against Chess.com's computer. I had the black pieces, and the computer was set to Hard mode which is supposedly 2000+ level...not sure if I buy that.
From what I've been taught, white's first move was a blunder :/
It can be if White doesn't continue correctly. I just chose a lazy opening. I'm hesitant to go into complex positions with strong computers since they almost always out-analyze me.
Yeah, that happens a lot with me too. But, the reason I say so, is because that playing the opening that white did, leaves the king to many attacks. Here is one.
Right. I actually had a kid I played at lunch one day at my old school play this. He was surprised after I played 2...Qh4#.
Yeah, I'm sure!! A bunch of people say it is impossible to have a mate in two, but I showed them this, and they were like "That would never happen! We meant a legitimate game!". But now, since that ACTUALLY happened, I have something to hang over their heads! :D
It's called the "fool's mate", because the person who plays white has to be a complete idiot to push the 'g' pawn.
