    We should not prematurely take the queen out (cannot be overemphasized), unless you need the queen for immediate attack.  He's a GM, that's so easy to understand.  Wink

    I'd rather say pretty well set up traps in most cases. I've been had recently by one of these traps. I'd love to see you, Smartattack, without the solution before your eyes, if you would be so much less innocent.
