Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-14-12  master of defence: What´s wrong with 32...bax6 33.Kxc6 Kf4?
Sep-14-12  Robed.Bishop: Assuming that you intend to have the black king attack the pawns on g2 and h2, white's pawn on a2 will win the race.
Sep-14-12  master of defence: <Robed.Bishop> Show me a variant of how white wins after 32...bxa6 33.Kxc6 Kf4.
Sep-14-12  Shams: <m.o.d.> I'll show you the end of it-- 41.a8=Q g2 42.Qa2!

Now 42...Kh1 43.Qd5 wins.

Sep-14-12  master of defence: <Shams> I want all the line to this position.
Sep-14-12  Shams: <m.o.d.> It's a simple pawn race which you can figure out on your own. I'm not your mother, bringing sandwiches up to your room when you holler.
Sep-14-12  master of defence: <Shams> And I said you were my mother? Respect me loser. I already knew the sequence, but I wanted you to show me what it was.
Sep-14-12  Shams: <Respect me loser.>

You have to be kidding. Probably more than anyone else on this site, I have patiently answered your (simple) chess questions, and for months. It's true what they say, no good deed goes unpunished.

Most Brazilians I have met are more polite than you are. Welcome to the sandbox, infante.

Sep-14-12  Jim Bartle: Somebody's calling shams a loser? Give me a break.
Sep-14-12  master of defence: <Shams> Sorry, I didn´t wanted discute with you. But you spoke of my mother, and I didn´t liked it, man. But what it mean <Welcome to the sandbox, infante.>?
Sep-14-12  Shams: <m.o.d.> Nevermind, let's just forget it. I won't mention your family again. Pax.
Sep-14-12  master of defence: Ok, But I´m in your ignore list yet?
Sep-14-12  Shams: <m.o.d.> No, let's continue to talk chess.
Sep-14-12  master of defence: <Shams> Let´s play a game of chess at flyordie?
Sep-14-12  master of defence: <Shams: <m.o.d.> I'll show you the end of it-- 41.a8=Q g2 42.Qa2!> What after 42...h5? If 43.Qf2 Kh3 44.Qg1 h4 45.Kc5 Kg3 and at least is a draw.
Sep-14-12  Shams: <m.o.d.> 44.Qf3+ wins a pawn in that line.
Sep-14-12  master of defence: <Shams> If 44.Qf3+ Kh4 keeps the draw.
Sep-14-12  rapidcitychess: <master of defense>

He just takes the g-pawn.

Sep-14-12  master of defence: <rapidcitychess> It´s stalemate after 45.Qxg2.
Sep-14-12  Shams: You're right, stalemate is a resource there. Ok, bring the king up: 44.Kc4 and Black must pitch a pawn soon with check.
Sep-14-12  master of defence: <Shams> If 44.Kc4 h4 45.Qg1(Kd3 g1=Q draws) Kg3 46.Qe1+ Kh3 and seems a draw again.
Sep-14-12  rapidcitychess: Missed that. >.<
Sep-14-12  Shams: <m.o.d.> Here, I was able to win it first time easily against Crafty:
Sep-14-12  master of defence: <Shams> I winned againist Crafty too. Let´s play chess tomorrow at night in the site
