    I started playing about a month ago because I read The Art of War, and figured I would be a natural.

    Which I would be, if people didn't keep taking my horses, or Provoker would agree to play me.

    I enjoy it because it is like brain candy. Good place to channel thoughts... piece hunting.

    I open with whatever you do not see coming.

    However poor that opening may be.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Yeah for some reason, I'm weakest with my knights (I've long since gotten better at it, but I'm still able to pull off combos with my bishops much more easily.)

    One of the games that will stand out most in my mind is when I had to sac my queen and forcibly trade my rook, so I was in a heap ton of trouble, and I managed to pull off a mate with my two knights against a pretty strong player in a local chess club.

    Watching Hikaru no Go (an anime about Go) has made me really want to start playing chess again.

How good, I cannot say because I don't know enough about you. In the face of any given new situation within the confines of that closed system you should be able to pick the most suitable strategies and formulate an appropriate strategy going forward. Spend enough time on any given activity and you will pick up some level of proficiency. If you wish to become a knitting prodigy, research shows four hours a day of solitary practice for 10 years should do it. You could be knitting the mona lisa in 10 years, the smile might take another 13 years.

    What is the goal here? Are you trying to make me feel dumb by reciting knowledge you don't think I have? It won't work. If I really want to know any of the stuff you posted about I can pick up some textbooks and learn it. How you use knowledge is more important than knowledge itself. I will be impressed if you do anything meaningful.


    I just wasted another half hour on this site. That's half an hour of knitting time you cost me.

    I meant analyze the game, not the player.

    I think the reason for Black's demise hinged largely upon 3. Nge7 and 6. g5, which pretty much locked up his Kingside.

    I wonder what it would be like if people over-analyized other board games.
    Like monopoly.

    How to win at monopoly:
    1. Buy every property you can
    2. Don't sell anything unless absolutely necessary
    3. Rig dice
    4. ???????
    5. PROFIT!
