I am but a noob.
Yeah 4. Nxe4 is instant equality. 5 ...Be7 is instant equality and none of the sharp stuff in this opening (This is Frankenstein-Dracula mainline). I am currently on the white side of a FD in a Vote Chess game that we are losing. Bummer.
I didn't realize that it was the Frankenstein-Dracula. Wow.
maybe they are in looneyville Gavinator. the problem with this logic is that in Matrix chess Rooks are also worth two and this is completely false. the reason is it takes two bishop's assisted to mate where as it takes only one rook assisted to mate.
You know that JF meant a lone bishop cannot FORCE mate, while a rook is sufficient.
"it takes two bishop's assisted to mate"
Jetfighter is just freakin dumb. I think he might be the same person as Christiansoldier.
Yes I know that, what does that have to do with anything? Stop trolling me bro
You really struggle to remain rational don't you Gavin? I'm amazed we're trying to have discussion with some kid that calls himself the gavinator obsessed with a Gadaffi look alike who reckons vectors have a use in chess. Enlighten us how does black force mate below?
No I showed what he said, jetfighter is just stupid.
They can't, how dumb are you.
If they can't wtf is wrong with jetfighers statement.
No it doesn't.
I know, but 1 bishop can give mate too.
You fail to understand the game of chess is not a cooperative affair. The mate you showed earlier cannot be forced. Therefore, jetfighters statement that two bishops in cooperation with a king are needed to force mate is completely valid.
He never said force now did he?
no the situation that I refered to was below
You never mentioned the word force, and there is no mate there period. Stop trolling.
Ok you are the one trolling because you don't know general chess termonology. when I say a Bishop and King cannot mate without extra help I mean against a lone king where as a rook can do that with a king. its simple endgame termonology that you don't know because you never get there. either because you loose. win because of your elaborate trap. or just plain don't care to play one.
I wish I had admin control. I'd retitle this thread, "Gavinator is a troll" making sure that is by Gavinator, giving his apology along with a lengthy, why the Parham is inept. Then I'd lock it.
I don't think the value of pieces has much to do with how easy it is to mate the king with them.
well calling a rook equal to a bishop is looney. therefore Gavinator Parham and anyone who agree's with them are loons. Dive back underwater why doncha
