"How come"...what sort of grammar is that?


Grousers gonna grouse


The king is not in check.

I hate it when after a comeback I end up with a draw due to poor planning. My basic strategy is to go for continuous check. Probably an amateur move on my part. Thinking would also work. Also I hate the "en passant" move but I'm trying to get over it.


Choked on my glass of water when i saw this ...


I will get you another glass.

To avoid stalemate.

See, it's very easy to avoid stalemate many times.
But if a player can plan and force you into getting
a stalemate then that is a good tactic.
Stalemate had been around hundreds and hundred of years and there is no way to eliminate it. There is also a draw when you don't have the correct pieces to mate
the other king. Then that is a draw. Also when someone
offer you a draw and it is accepted. That is a draw.

In your diagram the King is not in Check. It is just standing there and it can't move. To be in check another piece or pawn has to be in a position to take him. Of course the King can never be captured.


i knw its a rule  bu really a silly 1 sorry so say tht bu it z looks bit silly n for me there is no  draw lose or win only these 2 results cz if the opposit king cant make a move by any reason means thy lost the game

bu anyways thnx to all of u for rplying
