Quote from: Hijiri Byakuren on August 25, 2017, 07:33:59 PMI've tried learning Chess a few times, but I keep losing interest after about a week. By "learn" I mean memorizing the best opening moves, thinking a few moves ahead, etc.
Quote from: Unbeliever on August 25, 2017, 04:37:27 PMThere was a chess thread a few years ago that didn't go anywhere of interest, so I thought maybe we could try again.I know some of you play chess. Do any of you players record your games? If so, I'm hoping you'll post some of your better ones here so that we can enjoy them. I'll start by posting one of the games I played this past summer with a fellow named Dave, who can usually give me a bit of a challenge. Not in this game, though - I managed to trap his Queen after only 14 moves!I was playing the white pieces:1. d4........d52. c4........e63. Nc3......Nf64. Nf3......c55. Bf4......Be76. e3.......0-07. cd5......ed58. dc5......Bc59. Rc1......Bb410. a3......Ba511. b4......Bb612. Na4....Be613. Bb6....Qb614. Bc7.....resignsI guess on move 13 he didn't want to double his pawns on the b file, as I thought he'd have to do. I was planning to move my Rook to the 7th rank afterwards, but when he recaptured with the Queen I saw that I could trap it. It's usually not easy to trap a Queen on such an open board, so I felt pretty good about it.I wish I still had all the other games I've recorded over the years, but didn't manage to keep up with them. I have a few of the ones I played recently, though, so I'll see if any more of them are worth posting.I hope some of you will post some of your's, as well.

Quote from: Unbeliever on August 26, 2017, 01:53:27 PMThere's a pawn on d6 capturing a pawn on d5.
Quote from: Cavebear on August 26, 2017, 02:33:13 PMOh, you meant 13. Nb6 not BI'm of the old positional notation. The newer algebraic notation gives me fits. I had to write the letters and numbers on a board to play postal and online. But you got it wrong on 13. And I see how the Q is trapped. Nice game, bad notation.I remember Bobby Fisher's P-K4 "Best By Test", LOL. But get the moves right. You drove me crazy for an hour til I figured out what the right move HAD to be.And yeah I messed on 7.
Quote from: Unbeliever on August 26, 2017, 03:20:18 PMAch, you're right laddie! I fixed it. I'll be sure to be more careful next time.I used the descriptive notation for a long time, but the algebraic is a bit easier for me to use now that I've gotten used to it.
