Ok I used to play chess. Not in any tourneys or the like but i did take a saturday class once and did well against the teacher.
Like all things my performance is .... eratic.
I will go down in flames or do well.
I don't think 15 moves ahead i average around 3 or 4.
My greatest accomplishment that i've managed to do twice so far is this.
Explain fools mate to person (quick kill like 3 moves and thats it) then kill them with it immediately in the next game not 2 minutes later.
I did that a couple days ago when people at the office started playing chess for some reason.
First time i did it much better. Killed them with fools mate then killed them with fools mate again. with just a slight variation on how the order of the pieces moved.
But just finished a game. him down to a king, pawn, and knight. me with both rooks, a knight, a bishop and 4 or 5 pawns.
what do i do?
i stall until i can queen one of my pawns.
i considered queening the other two pawns i had left but said screw it.
so the subject line was said to me.
I like chess at times but its a bit slow of a game for me since we don't have chess clocks.
