It had an interesting finish where I sacrificed two minor pieces and managed to get a forced mate.1. c4......e62. Nc3....Nf63. d4......d54. Nf3.....c65. Bf4.....dc46. e4......Bb47. a3......Bc38. bc3.....Ne49. Qc2.....Nd610. Bd6...Qd611. Bc4....0-012. 0-0....Nd713. Re1....Nf614. Ne5....Nd715. Rab1...b516. Bd3.....g617. Ng6.....fg618. Bg6.....hg619. Qg6+...Kh820. Re3......Rf621. Rh3 mate

Quote from: Unbeliever on August 31, 2017, 12:05:34 PMYou're right again! Sorry about that. That's what I get for posting the moves without having a board in front of me and checking them as I go. I will from now on.The 13th move is Rfe1.

Quote from: Cavebear on September 04, 2017, 01:20:07 AMYeah, yeah, and the board was half the pieces, there were 4 players, the K was more powerful etc. Do you think I don't know that stuff? And I wasn't offerring to play you. Someone who knows the game.
