Game analysis - How to humanly get that 2N=Q here? #4

Re OP, it's really NN + _that massive f6 pawn_ that make it equal. Trade f6 for a6, and eval becomes an obvious -5. As a side-note, 10... O-O 11. Rf3 is splendid : - I dare you. - Here I come.

General Chess Discussion - The boring open games #2

I have experience with "I'm an aggressive player, good moves are boring, and hyperaggressive moves are losing". Imo the answer to that is to start finding good moves not boring anymore, and to lear…

General Chess Discussion - Control of bad behavior on lichess.org #3

While I agree with the sentiment, you don't seem to be aware of the very creative ways black sheep get around simple swear-filtering systems. I mean, existing ALL CApS RuLES ARE SIM-PLE TO BYpASS, and…

Atomic Chess Theoreticians - Let's Switch to a Different Starting Position #90

@savagechess2k Sure, but the point remains. Just how many games do you think there are in the Nf3 f6 e3 e6 Nd4 c6 Nb5 cxb5 Qh5 g6 Qb5 Nc6 Qb6 axb6 Bb5 Kf7 Bxd7 Rxa2 line ? Consider how deep the mate w…

Meanwhile, meat-space agents finished their game : https://lichess.org/J5p4vBZf I think 9... dxe4 was the losing move, maybe e5 or h6 is better. One strong black threat with 2 pawns in hand and one…
