Mate in central ranks--plus 10 points !

  • #1

    I propose:

    If one mates the opponent's king in the 2 central ranks,(i.e., a5 to h5 or a4 to h4), he may be given plus 10 bonus points in the rating !

     

    What do you think ?

    Why? Normally it is a brilliancy game, that's why.

    You mean like when Lenny Bongcloud brilliantly tricked Yosemite Sam into mating him to win the Bongcloud tournament of Charleston, 1976?;

    That's a game, all right.

    Granted, Yosemite Sam isn't incredibly difficult to trick into attacking.

    Above is a self mate win not a normal game.
