    I can't help but pat myself on the back (that's kinda hard to do) for actually winning game number 2 against an 1800 player! I lost the first one, and I'm not advancing to the next round in this tourney, but I did get this win.

    Interesting game, I downloaded the PGN.  Congratulations are due for beating an 1808, but why post it here?  Why didn't you start your own post about beating someone nearly 400 points above you.  It is out of place under "Stuff Non-Chess Players Say."

    This is categorized under Fun with Chess. One and all and welcome to join in the convo. (Maybe you would not have seen the game if it were somewhere else.)

    I didn't realize akafett was responding to you, dragonair234, but I think the game would stand out more if it had its own thread.  I posted No. 5927 because it was clever, humorous and relevant to "Stuff Non-Chess Players Say."  However, I realize when the number of posts is very high, like this one, they go every which way.  You have to admit, it makes it hard for newcomers to the thread to find those posts that apply to the title.

    I have a digital chess clock. Someone asked, "What is that?"

    "It's a chess clock," I said.

    "So, how do you know what time it is? Does it have the date, too?"

    "Is it... a smartclock?"
