No probs...it's like walking through a rook of strings tied to hand grenade pins!!! Tread carefully and stay frosty!

White's move

This feels like a deadly game of chicken! This is the weirdest game, mate....now I know what the conventional move would have been in this past move for me, but I find myself plying a more difficult gambit. But even if I'd played the conventional move, it would have led to nowhere :shock:

Rook takes Rook please Em.

I am pretty impressed that you had an idea what the conventional move would have been, I lost track of all normal movement ages ago :lol:

:lol: ...yeah, I believe conventional move would have been Nxa4 to remove your Bishop...a 'btter for less' deal. However, your Queen would have nullified that, with my not being able to retaliate with my Bishop because of a blocking pawn. I really couldn't justify loosing that Knight, though it may have been the smarter play than what I am hoping to do :o :P
