When bughouse isn't really bughouse:

fortuitous game xD Luckily you can't smell blood over the net.

YAY update : ANAYLYSIS WORKING AGAIN ty ty ty ty ty

So, my chess playing might have to go to other sites. I have so many issues here now with analysis (won't save or adjust) and opening explorer (gone completely). I fear until I get a completely new reinstall I have to use these resources elsewhere sad.png and even then it might not work sad.png have complained pretty hard in threads i made about it but sounds god awful to have to keep repeating my issues to support... so I might be just here for the socials pretty soon, all the pieces of paper and one sided games due to me not being able to see the book is uncool. sad.png

At first I thought it was just me and to do with me being on a Linux OS but others have had similar problems even on windows 10.

why should i have to be on two different sites at once just to play with the same cond. as others...

bit sad...

oh well. rant ovah

 Very interesting structure / fortress lately.

A while ago:

...the vote chess, is so intense, it's like Platoon. we are playing one of the best teams and our team is very good too. I feel like the others will do something wild and crazy out of the sicilian but I'm too paranoid to mention it. I think.  Heads down, guns cocked, eyes up...

I'm just trying to get my head back really. I feel like I'm in some kind of semi lockdown stasis. I might go and hug some goats at the farm. xCCCC


I still think this site is too controlled by auto bots and similar judgemental things that completely backfire in live chess so I rarely play live chess here any more. Am happy to play elsewhere though. Just with mates on here for now.

Don't let them declare you a second class citizen when you know you haven't done anything wrong.


Am a wahine in Aotearoa-New Zealand.

I tried playing chess for the first time since I was about 7 in December 2018 and have become completely absorbed by it. I have some learning issues that seem to hinder some progress but I don't mind, I think my goal with chess is to always love it.

I guess you could call this next position an example of : Queens pawn, Krause Variation um black probably shouldn't try THAT again xD

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 trade at least. xD

New favourite game:

https://www.chess.com/daily/game/231112722 contains my first brilliant move !!!

doesn't seem that brilliant eh lol, seems wise.

Also, if you follow on from there, it calls my complex (for me) sac operation a blunder, which seems weird since I end up an extra +1 on material, perhaps it didn't notice I was going to get his B no matter what, so I would be an extra +3 as well, so isn't that what you are supposed to do, sac even pieces when you are ahead?



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. For instance, try to never begin sentences with "Also" as it is a focusing adjunct (does not stand alone) and I probably should rephrase that previous back end : a more formal style of English. Us Kiwis are so slack xD but we have US, UK, and Aussie television mainly, so we have kind of become abreast of many styles of vernacular.  IE: we can understand all English speaking people which is funny as most can barely understand our accent and slang!

Granite is supposed to be about the hardest rock you can get on earth I believe, that can feasibly be turned into chess boards. very pleased with this acrylic rubbed in the etchings 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.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This was all made when I was happy on the site ^^^ then all this

GM_Magnus_Kingdom gifted me diamond membership, even after I asked him not to. What can you do!

4 Jan '20

so for the second time in two days, i am muted and then unmuted on chess.com. no one was asked by me to remove the mutes. THIS WAS NOT WHEN EVERYONE WAS GETTING MUTED AT THE START OF FEBRUARY, IT WAS JUST ME AS FAR AS I COULD TELL.

what the heck is going on.


so yeh be warned apparently they can "call you unsportsmanlike for your general behaviour in forums" etc.

It's in one of the chess.com threads I started if you look.

Don't look though. It's boring and sad I just think if everyone was honest about how they feel about all this auto bot mute stuff etc then this site would be so much better.

But they won't discuss things with angry people and I did get pretty angry!


wow, am unable to comment with this account as of yesterday lol... That includes, I can't even respond in messages to friends. I see all my posts in all threads I've ever done seem to have been deleted.

i guess it's from swearing in my pms to friends, coupled with my distaste for That Button.

this site is so insane, i really can't keep up with it. If i don't respond to you, please send me your email addy.

oh well, peace and love, look forwards to truly free chess in a more free world grin.png~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It's rude though to only share those lessons from Simon here if people pay 200$ per year. Uncool. We should all get one complete lesson from him for free, that would be much better business generator for all involved, rather than just cut out during one video. Don't do that to people that have paid you nearly 100$ per year, thanks.

You could have also warned us non diamond people at the start that the video would cut out.


Other things that probably need explanation: In New Zealand we have some spelling oddities, as do all countries right - so Offence is always spelt thus in NZ, as is Defence. In all definitions that I can think of. You might ask, why wouldn't I just make myself look slightly less of an idiot and spell it the American way. Well, it's because I want to support the young NZ people that I meet on here, and not give them bad habits unless it is changed officially here.xD=S^


It's a shame we can't see a chart anywhere of how many pending games we have signed up for.
