@RealDarren Don't tell it to me. Tell it to Alexander Alekhine.
@FrodoPiano Others may disagree but in my opinion after 1.e4, 1.Nf6 is possibly the worst possible move imaginable. I don't advise that you ever make it.
Hmmm unless maybe you're intending on the sizy gamble of taking the F2 pawn directly in exchange for the knight
This would make a good poll in fact.
If you think I'm talking nonsense about 1.Nf6 then please say so but frankly I can't think of much worse. (1.f6 looks pretty bad but I've never really explored it or come up against it)
Beat a few GM's. Been taking out NM's, FM's, and sometimes IM strength guys, but GM's are elusive :-) Happy Chess in 2013 everyone! Good LuckSnowLion
Solution[!]: 1...Black offers draw and simultaneously resigns!?![?] - yes/no? ...
And that's the way 'I' see it! ...
I ALWAYS tell myself that I'll play more. What ends up happening? Not that! The more practice the better you'll become. Such a simple saying yet difficult to always apply.
i have a lego kingdoms chess set
I'd like to get involved with a chess club . . . it seems kind of intimidating though!
Learn by playing.. the best way! :D
to force myself to slow down and quit hanging pieces?
play better then all of my opponents and quite smoking
i think i need to improve calculation
I'm way to addicted to chess. I need to play less and focus on classes in college xD
learn openings better
To not draw anymore game 60+5 when i have 50min and my opponent has 1 sec because i move my king into a position where we have a three forld. use time that i have more of and not play lightning before an irl tournament.
