I know that we've had something similar at Chritmastime.

As the saying goes, if you play stupid games, you win ants.

  perfidious: The poster to whom this pun is attributed is hardly known for originality.
Oct-15-20  Sally Simpson: ***

It's a quirk here on C.G. that the pun is often discussed more than the actual game. At the moment it is, The Pun 4 The Game 4 ( this post will make it 5-4 to the pun)

Maybe the next version of Stockfish should come as an added feature a pun creator. It won't come up with anything worse than those already dotted around the place.

Good Game (5-5)

  Check It Out: Being such a positional materialist, the opening floored me. Just let those center pawns go! Who cares?!

Someone help me break out of this. I need to stop caring about material. <Sally Simpson> knows the cure.

  perfidious: <CIO>, in 1996, even I went through a short-lived infatuation with 1.e4 and tried the King's Gambit a few times, and my style was predominantly positional. Was a bit strange, actually.

Hi Check it Out,

< I need to stop caring about material. Sally Simpson, knows the cure.>

The less material you have the less you have to worry about protecting them, it also cuts down on the number of targets your opponents has.

If one of your pieces is under attack then offer another...and another. They only get one move at a time. The more pieces you having hanging the more confused your opponent.

Gordon Morrison vs G Chandler, 1978

Black to play.

Both Bishops are hanging, so I played 6...Nc6

Always look for an excuse not to retreat an attacked piece. In the above game I eventually pulled my Bishop back from c5-d6 so it could aim at h2. It had been hanging for 6 moves, that is 6 reason I found not to save it and it was my only backward move.

Think positive, you never lose a middle-game pawn, instead you have gained a half open file to stick a Rook on and sacrifice itself for anything and I mean anything, that is in it's sights.

And always remember: It is better have checked and lost then never to have checked at all.

Now get our there and sac your pawns, your pieces...your sanity and become a legend in your own lunchtime.

  Check It Out: <Sally Simpson> That's just the medicine I needed, along with more than a few belly laughs. Thanks!
