Would you like to try Twin King Chess?

I don't think so, I'll take a look at it tomorrow but probably not. I'm already neglecting my regular chess games too much, I need to get back into those.

Great game! Black issued seven consecutive checks, but White kept fighting to the very end. Very tricky manuevers by pieces from both sides!
22.Q(-7,11)...Hx(8,1)+
23.K(5,2)...Q(5,-6)+
24.B(5,0)...Q(9,-2)+
25.K(4,1)...H(6,1)+
26.K(3,0)...Q(1,-2)+
27.K(4,0)...Q(6,-2)+
28.K(5,1)...H(8,1)+
White survives a few more moves!

Medals go to both players for an excellent game!

Thanks! Good game, again.

I didn't capture a single pawn.

I'm convinced the hawk's pans are not a viable target early on. The small material advantage is outweighed by the development advantage

Pawns are worth grabbing if all your pieces are protected and you have nothing better, and in the early stages there's always something better... development.

I totally agree. Next time, though, follow your own principles wink.png

Are you referring to the pawn grab with my queen? That was trapping your chacellor... ie "something better".
