Am a wahine in Aotearoa-New Zealand.
I FINALLY managed to fishingpole someone !!! So everyone I play, can now stop suffering if game starts E4 E5 !
I have to thank Drunken_Shrimp for the blog that taught me the trap!
here is the link to the game; (i think it is a linux issue but I can't upload games properly without holding 5 uncomfortable yoga positions especially with my tongue.)
In the same vein, I guess you could call this next position an example of : Queens pawn, Krause Variation um black probably shouldn't try THAT again xD
Another more stupid game that I OBviously did not win after getting used for canon fodder but then I won his Queen by ab-pinning it xD : but was very exciting turn around for a moment. A Stylish attack under pressure, then pin and recheck point, Queen sac at least. xD
Also isn't this game pretty (and balanced) :
New favourite game:
https://www.chess.com/daily/game/231112722 contains my first brilliant move !!!
doesn't seem that brilliant eh lol, seems wise.
Also, if you follow on from there, it calls my complex (for me) sac operation a blunder, which seems weird since I end up an extra +1 on material, perhaps it didn't notice I was going to get his B no matter what, so I would be an extra +3 as well, so isn't that what you are supposed to do, sac even pieces when you are ahead?
I discovered chess in December 2018 and completely fell in love with the game.
PM me if anyone wants to learn about trying linux or making your browser set up tight to protect your personal data. Also love learning new languages so if you teach me bits of yours I can help you learn kiwi or a more formal English. For instance, try to never begin sentences with "Also" as it is a focusing adjunct (does not stand alone) and I probably should rephrase that previous back end : a more formal style of English. Us Kiwis are so slack xD but we have US, UK, and Aussie television mainly, so we have kind of become abreast of many styles of vernacular. IE: we can understand all English speaking people which is funny as most can barely understand our accent and slang!
Granite is supposed to be about the hardest rock you can get on earth I believe, that can feasibly be turned into chess boards. very pleased with this acrylic rubbed in the etchings effect, and still for all intents and purposes is perfectly flat. Could be cut a teensy bit deeper I suppose but other techniques will pop up. it's nice having the sheen difference as well as colour, as you can really sink into the game more like an ocean. The other piece I will try and make the squares take up the entire 16 inch slab. My brass set obviously needs the extra board space, 2 inches per square is looking mighty fine in my mind.
May all lost souls eventually find their way home.
