jetfighter- in your notes to move 43, the KP vs. K is a win after 46. Kd4 instead of 46. d4??
Funny story... many years back when I was a beginner to chess... I was playing a computer and doing ''good'' (probably not too great, but good at the time) and I thought I had a solid pawn offense going... I said to myself I'll finally beat the damn computer... then the computer performed the ''En passant''.. my jaw dropped... I thought the damn computer cheated or had an error in the program... read up on the computer program I was playing against at the time in the FAQ and sure enough the ''En passant''move was in there, read more up on chess about it and learned what it was. I don't think most beginners know about that move... I sure didn't, at the time I was learning how to play chess.
Whenever these threads pop up I always think of this image... I couldn't actually find this image, so I had to go make it just now lol
^Because I'm Rick James, B*****!
I think I'll just post this in any topic I'm tired of reading/responding to .
At least it seems like a good idea right now while I'm tired.
Often taking en passent is not the best move, this game I played OTB at school today is a great example
Your gameplay is very good jetfighter13 but I don't get why your opponent didn't take the b pawn with the rook after 35. b5+ that would at least give him some hope.......
nice use of zugzwang too jetfighter13
@kgwkyle Socrates wasn't an actual philosopher, he was a character made by Plato and used in his literature. Though I suppose there is the interpretation that Socrates was Plato's teacher, and Plato was simply putting down written word of what his teacher was saying.
I see pictures; what we need to do to get people to do things... write what you want done, then get a clip of Chuck Norris saying that he approves this message lol
