Getting closer to winning
I'm always saying to myself "you have to learn to think ahead". This game is a prime example. I did see the option of taking the queen with mine but for some reason thought he'd be able to move out of check from my bishop discovered check. Thought he'd take my queen with his knight anyway. If anyone knows how to make the PGN option work when you click the little chess board icon please let me know. I tried the third option to use PGN and it kept giving me invalid file name. Anyhow, here's the game:
Played 3 games on "hard" against little chess beater for kicks - first game humbled me properly, second game humiliated me 10 moves in (basic error allowed queen attack on my knight, bishop, and castle kingside), and third game....I WON...I never win when I am mapping out the moves to take notes lol :)
Anyway, it says "depth 0 time 0 nodes 0 score 10,000" at the top of the screen; any ideas on what this means?
And oh, I'm disappointed it doesn't let me use copy/paste to put the screen in so I can share my rare wins with my friends...and the graphic "create a board" won't let me put my queen just to the left of the black king. But that's where it was for the checkmate I got here. I basically ignored his attack on my kingside and threw him off with a knight sacrifice by going to b6 which he took with his knight, opening up his kingside. I really needed to feel good about myself, didn't get a lot of sleep today and I'm sick - so I don't mind tooting my own horn now! LOL
