Well, if Stibs is in, we'd have to do it online, which could potentially put Ernie out...probably a fair trade :lol: :lol: :lol:

Online? I don't think my connection can support chess and porn at the same time. I can barely keep this site up.

online is lame, Stibs should just crash at your place for the winter.

First thing (before the smack starts), I'd love to do a winter chess night. It cant be Mondays or Wednesdays; that my dads and my chess night.

If anyone here knows a chess player (this is where the smack starts), let me know. For everyone else, I'll send my grand-daughter.

Per the cop report, after they started to fight, the guy put his buddy's head/neck between his legs and sufficated him.
He said he noticed something was wrong when he turned a shade of purple and then tried to resuscitate him.

The guys blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit five hours afterwards when the cops tested him :shock:

This is right before the end of a 6 hour chess game. This is one of the leading causes of killing your opponent with a leg choke.

Lets see what everyone thinks;




White;
King= B5
Queen= B8
Rook= B4
Pawn= A5 and C5


Black
King=G7
Queen=G5
Bishop=E7

Whites move; can queen move to c7, making it so black bishop can not protect black queen if she moves to C5?
Yes, white King can move back to A4 BUT also, could Whites king take Blacks queens (if she did take C5 pawn) because black bishop can not move or he would be putting himself in mate (eventhough) by him moving- he would win by capturing the king first???????

This is the second time I have ran into this problem. I did win by moving rook to C4 protecting pawn then advancing foward. But this is something that I have tried to look up on what the rules state and I just cant find this case.[img][img]http://img141.imageshack.us/img141/546/chessproblemyj8.jpg[/img][/img]

If white's queen moves to c7 and black's queen takes at c5 then white's queen takes the black queen and wins. White's better move would be to move the queen to c8 threatening to move whites rook to g4 pinning blacks queen. At least that looks good to me. :lol:
