One of my first chess teachers said to me once: "It is also a skill to know when to resign"



I am truly full of that skill

As I said in the other thread many players of all levels will have legitimate reasons to play on. I play one guy regularly in tourneys who will move last hour of last day and it's easy to look down down a list where everyone else has played all but two games and wonder why? But the fact remains that is his shout and I just accept that when I move it will 10 days until he replies and I have chosen that time limit so that if I need 10 days to move for whatever reason. I can!!

Must admit I have slowed down makes your moves more towards the style of old-fashioned correspondence.

Many players also utilise this option, unfortunately. Especially a treat when combined with increasingly slow response time

Honestly I'm polling sites because another upgraded but does not have a resign button. I told the owner I thought it made the site unique




That site now has an uncolored resign button. I think it should be red with black letters

I shall never resign again having completed reading my first chess book

Chess - Strategy, Openings and Principles

What is chess strategy? chess strategy is knowing how to make a plan for the chess game by arranging your chess pieces to accomplish this plan.

Wow I am hooked. How can any book that says chess 4 times in the opening two sentences not be a winner

1) Good chess strategy is to make your first move with the e-pawn or d-pawn advancing two squares. In either case, you will open pathways for the pieces to get off of the back rank and into the fight for the central squares.

2) Good chess strategy is playing each piece one time to its best square, developing them all in turn, and getting your chess pieces off the starting squares. You want to get your pieces into the game rapidly, and posted where they can accomplish something - either aiding your attack or defense of the center. Seldom will you move the same piece twice in the chess opening.

3) Good chess strategy is keeping your King safe, so castle early and get him behind your wing pawns. Castling is a great way to safeguard your King from sudden chess tactics and even checkmate - it gets the King away from the center and develops one of your Rooks at the same time. Top level chess strategy!

4) Good chess strategy is advancing only one or two pawns in the chess opening, just enough to stake out the center and develop your pieces quickly. Moving pawns can weaken your defenses, and is responsible for many losses in the chess opening. A pawn move can never be retracted!

5) Good chess strategy is to make a threat when developing the pieces, which will limit the opponent's freedom of choice. This is the initiative, a chess strategy will dictate the game's course.

Develop and threaten - good chess strategy! The End

Thank me at your leisure Boys..and girl

Could be open to a chat on the abuses of technology which has existed since the invention of the wheel, however, would prefer not to go to that discussion.



Sleigh runners are the only way to go.



After last weekends snow reliably informed spring is just around the corner.
