My dad taught me to play "gentlemens" chess when I was a child. When I put my queen in jeopardy he would say "your queens in danger" and I was allowed to take the move back. I assume his reasoning was to allow the games to progress to the point where I would learn the middle and the end games. But more importantly, I learned to enjoy playing chess. Thanks Dad.
