The queen was hanging for six whole moves anyway until hitthepin moved the king, I assume that's what the "wow" comment was about.

hitthepin
Oh... I don’t feel so good.
hitthepin
Well, it was a good first game. I resign.

Wow. This is...I don't know what to say. (Other than "That 'Fix You' song is extremely overrated.")

hitthepin
This is sad.
hitthepin
For me. :(

Ah, don't be sad. I screw my games up too. Everyone does. It's natural to make mistakes. You got this! wink.png

hitthepin
Gotta do better next time.

Speaking of doing better, I just lost three games in a row.... And I have a local chess tournament starting tomorrow morning. I guess I'm just tired. Sometimes the best thing to do is take a break.

hitthepin
Very good advice.

Thanks @hitthepin, gg.happy.png It's interesting that Black's queen-side chancellor made four consecutive knight-moves, capturing the queen at move 28:
28.(2,3)...Cx(5,3)

I was curious to see how many moves it would have taken to attack the queen if the Chancellor used only rook-moves instead. That would have taken five. I suppose it shows that for center-of-the-board battles, the knight often can be a strong piece when the board is still crowded. (diagram here):

A medal for @hitthepin for being a great opponent, and being one of the first players to learn and play infinite chess on the chess.com forums!
