    I swear there was a knock-on at knights bishop to c5

    Can we go to the bunker?

    And the prawn at de7 has an ankle injury.

    I have mated in two moves … Actually there is a case of a very early resignation, the resignee stated that on move 24 he will be checkmated??

    The best victory is the trapped by prawn.

    A bit like the drubbing gws got today.

    When they were setting up, I entered their team name competition.

    I still can’t understand a game that embraces knock ons.

    Played a lot when younger. A mate and I used to have games that we’d start 8 o clock at night and finish 10 next morning.
    We once played a very tight game. Went for hours and we were both on the defensive.
    I checkmated him after about 4 hrs play and not a single piece had been taken.
    I thought he’d fly off the handle but he just said this is cool and took a photo of it.

    On the other hand we played a very short game once. I took his queen in about the third move and he upended the board.

    That’s a concession.

    An opponent upended the board on me when I accused him of breaking touch move law but my brainy mate watching managed to accurately set back up.
