Am a wahine in Aotearoa-New Zealand.
I FINALLY managed to fishingpole someone !!! So everyone I play, can now stop suffering if game starts E4 E5 !
I have to thank Drunken_Shrimp for the blog that taught me the trap!
here is the link to the game; (i think it is a linux issue but I can't upload games properly without holding 5 uncomfortable yoga positions especially with my tongue.)
Another more stupid game that I OBviously did not win after getting used for canon fodder but then I won his Queen by ab-pinning it xD : but was very exciting turn around for a moment. A Stylish attack under pressure, then pin and recheck point, Queen sac at least. xD
Ok this next one, if I win it, it will be my best win in terms of highest rating my opponent had. If anyone wants to tell me what i did right, why did I get into this fairly good position let me know, just in really simplistic terms. I don't know why things have gone so well xD I can see a few sneaky ways to win at the moment so lucky they are such manouevreably good pieces for noobs eh. Maybe they are just playing really badly? I have no idea.
update in that game:
I discovered chess in December 2018 and completely fell in love with the game.
PM me if anyone wants to learn about trying linux or making your browser set up tight to protect your personal data. Also love learning new languages so if you teach me bits of yours I can help you learn kiwi or a more formal English.
Granite is supposed to be about the hardest rock you can get on earth I believe. very pleased with this acrylic rubbed in the etches effect, and still for all intents and purposes is perfectly flat. Could be cut a teensy bit deeper I suppose but other techniques will pop up. it's nice having the sheen difference as well as colour, as you can really sink into the game more like an ocean. The other piece I will try and make the squares take up the entire 16 inch slab. My brass set obviously needs the extra board space, 2 inches per square is looking mighty fine in my mind.
May all lost souls eventually find their way home.
