God damn I am so bad at this game, just had one of the more heartbreaking results I've had in a while:



I was in a pretty nice spot here, playing pretty well and had a 6-7 point lead according to the algorithm. I just completely missed white's one-move checkmate. I was planning on attacking his right-side pawn structure to start marching my own pawns for a promotion and pretty much tunnel vision'd completely.

It’s a good lesson that you gotta take the time to scan your opponents possible moves even when you’re balls are tingling. He must’ve been hard as a rock after escaping that one.

I tore this dude a new one with a similar set-up

sometimes you find the worst possible move like an engine trying to lose

most end games are solved, you would just have to memorize the solution, what fun is that though?


I wanna start playing Fischer random

I played in a couple of VA tournaments but lost, all the older vets are way better. They gave me a pin and I love it. Played in a Saint Cloud, Minnesota tournament, then was in a chess group on Fridays in New Haven, CT. Only went like 3 Fridays, it's too long of a drive.

you can memorize most every end game, not every scenario altogether m8

that's why when Grandmasters play, almost every game is either a draw or a resignation

memorizing specific end games is about as useful as memorizing specific openings. Once again, good luck if that is your strategy. Human memory is severely limited when it comes to rote memorization. You are much better off understanding the principles behind why said end games and openings follow a consistent pattern.
