I'm not doing a circuit of business travels at the moment.

Or did you mean it in the sense that the game is developing fast?

Zero, I was joking - What's a kingly court without the presence of jest?

(hint: it pseudo-rhimes with "jest")

I just noticed your "..." at the end of your earlier post. But I guess I didn't get the joke because I thought the game was moving fast, lol.

Zero, yes it did surprise me. I would say that both of you have rather unorthodox opening positions at this moment, but who am I to say. My conservative gameplay does not seem to fair well with email-chess.

Your knight can't reach d3. He can reach d4, but not d3.

I apologize for intruding, but may I suggest you both return to black's 4th move: Nxb4

White's turn.

Oh it's not a problem, I'm sure I added to the confusion. But, so we're squared away, is this position agreeable?

1. e4 Nc6
2. Nf3 e5
3. Bc4 Bc5
4. b4 Nxb4
5. c3

(ps thanks for the suggestion, philo, I agree)

I have no problem with it.

c3 Nd6


well, you probably read my post on poetry, and I just wanted people to know that I took your advise. I talked to her, and it turns out she did know I exist. we have a date planned for this saturday.

I gave her a lilly. thought about a cherry blossom, since thats what shes named after. (shes chinese) but thought it too much of a cliche.

about the date, I was thinking a picnic, with a movie later on. is that too much for a first date? (you can tell I have experience in this area.) lol.

This game seems to be moving fast(...), or maybe it seems that way because I haven't got around to Hatrack in a while.

Hey, dreadlord.

Just curious, can people place bets on the outcome? Or just make noisome comments in general?

Zero performed a king side castle (0-0). I will provide this for reference:

quote:
The new coding is pretty slick. The first letter (in caps) represents the piece you are moving. K=king, Q=queen, R=rook, N=knight, B=bishop, and for pawns there is no capital letter.
Then you add the tile that the piece is moving to. So if I am moving my bishop to c7, the move would be recorded as Bc7. If my piece takes another piece, this attack is marked by an x. So if my Bishop takes any piece on c7, the move would be recorded thusly "Bxc7". 1. The piece I move 2.the fact that he captures something and 3. his destination.

For pawn movements you just state the square the pawn moves to. So my first move was e4, so it's clearly a pawn move because it isn't preceded by a capital letter.

But... if a pawn captures a piece, the moves must include the column designation of the pawn I move (for example e, or a, or g) and then the x to indicate that I captured a piece, and of course the spot where it lands. So if my pawn is moving from e4 to capture a piece on d5 (doesn't matter what the piece is), it is recorded as "exd5"

And if I am putitng the king in check, I put a + at the end of the move. Bc5+ (bishop moves to c5 and checks the King), and when it is checkmate I put a # at the end. Bc5# (Bishop moves to c5 checkmate) or if you want to be really fancy Bxc5# (Bishop captures a piece on c5 and checkmates the King)


quote:
Algebraic chess notation has been around for a while, since 1737 when Phillip Stamma introduced it. Although it didn't catch on very quickly, gradually in the 19th Century, but nearly universally by the middle of the 20th Century. Figurine algebraic notation is language independent, when the players' browsers supports the unicode for chess figures: ♔, ♕, ♖, ♗, ♘, ♙, ♚, ♛, ♜, ♝, ♞, ♟
Other notations in algebraic notation. King side castle 0-0, Queen side castle 0-0-0, pawn promotion has the chosen piece noted after the move, eg, e8Q, en passant is treated differently according to whichever standard, the least ambiguous being the original file letter, an x indicating the capture, the coordinate location of the square to which the capturing pawn moves, optionally followed by e.p., exf6 e.p. End of game, 1-0 for white won, 0-1 for black won, ½-½ for a draw. Slight variations persist in all standards of algebraic chess notation.

The above information was provided by extrinsic and Zero. I would like to add that if identical pieces (i.e. R=Rook) could move to the same square, then you notate it with either the starting file (a-h) or starting rank (1-8), depending from which source the confusion arises (i.e. Rac1 - Rook on file a moves to file c on rank 1).

Oh I hadn't noticed your latest post, dreadlord, which led me to be confused. Sorry about that, mate.

0-0 means kingside castle, so no I did not take your pawn on d4.

I'll move in a bit. I tend to go on business trips during the weekends and it drags me away from my board, etc. (Just ask philo, lol) but I might be back as early as tonight--if we can close this deal.

I absolutely don't mind, amigo. And sometimes the best moves are the most predictable. Sort of like how if you have to go from LA to NY it's highly predictable that you'll take a jet, it's also the fastest way.

Give me some time to consider my next move (no chessboard here so I really can't visualize what you did)

You need to specify which knight moved to g4 since both can reach it.

No, I'm not going to play on that move. (Qg5) You just made a game-ending mistake. So please take it back in the interest of continuing the game without you losing your queen for nothing
