GM has an injured wrist, so the game is on hold until typing is back in action :D

Hey mate...sorry for so long a nap on this one. First my wrist gave out...and then my leg, so it's been a long haul on healing. Do you want to continue this match or shall we scrap it?

I think we have both put too much time and brainwork into this to scrap it. I am happy to keep going if you are, and also ok with getting the move done first.

Well, I have absolutely no clue of any strategy I may have had at one tome on this! :shock:

White moves Qxc5; Black moves Rd8....

Might take some time to get my head back in the game, I very nearly moved my Knight to threaten your Rook. :roll:

A quick think and I will get back to you.

Might take longer thamn I thought, I was just about to move my other knight when I noticed that would have been an illegal move. :lol:

haha...yeaah, it took me a bit to try and get my bearings back on this game. I have no clue what strategy I was aiming for. I had a Plan; it was a good Plan; it is gone!
