I've never heard of "white on right" before. And I never even realized that checkmate could be achieved in four moves until I joined this website.
In fact, most of what you said I don't even know about.
Technically, the fastest checkmate is 1.f3 e5 2.g4 Qh4#.
So, to add someting to the list, "You know you're a bad chess player if you can loose a game in 2 moves". (Which I've already done in Live chess).
I am now in shock and awe at how quickly checkmate can be achieved.
But that still leaves one question: what does 'white on right' mean.
- Your opponent laughs tentatively after you double jump their knight and bishop with your pawn and declare "king me!"
Well this settles it:
Next time I promote a pawn, I'm declaring 'Queen Me'!
I just laughed so hard at this.
Everyone is a bad chess player. Not one game of chess in the history of man or computer was without errors.
Does one really need signs?
I thought a game without errors would lead to a draw, and definitely not a win for black?
Nope, wrong. Chess is actually solved as a win for black, as another famous game between world champions with no errors proves:
Chess is solved as a win for black?
When the going gets tough, you think your opponent is a spoil-sport !!
No, it isn't. I think he was joking. But it isn't solved as a draw, either; that's what it would mean if you could prove that perfect play leads to a draw.
As far as I know, chess is a very long way from being solved.
I'm sure RD was joking.
You still think two dimensional chess is hard.
Now, wait a minute! Those Fischer-Spassky and Kramnik-Topalov games are not error-less games! In each game, White forfeited. I'd call that an error!
1) You 'analyse' games by simply playing through the moves, and refuse to try any variations in case you forget what the position was.
2) You insist on showing your games to stronger players, but refuse to listen to their advice.
3) You think the easiest way to draw with a stronger player is to swap as many pieces off as you can.
4) You try to cling on in strategically lost positions rather than playing for counterplay.
Shouldn't games that have less errors be mostly draws?
You lose a game without a single piece or pawn being taken.
You resign because they took your favorite pawn.
