Ask for a draw.
you may need to edit some of the things
If you sneak the white king off the board, you are guaranteed a draw - but not a win - unless you whitewash at least 2 queens. I think something went wrong prior to posting this puzzle. However, I am interested should you sort out the glitch.
Davaughe, I am more interested in chess scene in Jamaica. Are you in a position to give us a run down? Any clubs I can visit while on holiday? Any really strong players who have decided to stay on the island?
TonyGas I haven't laughed so much in a long time. Who says chess players lack humour?
Well thanks for this piece of knowledge and I will ensure that I stick to the rules and principles alluded to here!
this is like tonygas asking for white to mate black it 3 but settle for four in this senario, rotrlmao(rolling on the floor laughing my *** off)
now thats funny
Very Informative... How do you save the game into the nifty blue format? I've tried to copy the pgn, but it doesn't have the useful move-by-move buttons.
