Kibitzer's Corner
May-19-07  leow: Playing through this game with guess the move shows once again that the scoring system is utterly weak. Frm start to middle game I didn'r do very well, and I thought I would never reach the par score of 113, but at the end there are so many points for simple recaptures and for running your king towards the center that i finished with a score of 131. And I am really just an average player. The scoring system gives sometimes just one or two points for my moves in difficult situations, which is fine, but it comments with remarks like "well done""when you simply recapture or even make the only possible move sometimes.

But on a positive note. I love the guess the move feature. just hope it will get even better over time

Jul-18-07  frank124c: On move 43 my idea for White was to play 43. Qc8. This would have been an interesting qsac since when the Rook takes the Queen the Pawn takes the Rook and Queens. This wild idea got no points from Guess the Move but I think this might have worked in a real game. Can anyone find a refutation for my cogitation?

43. Qc8 would be met by 43...Rh1+ 44. Ke2 Qc2+ after which white is lost, as shown by the following lines:

45. Rd2 Qe4#

45. Ke3 Rxd1 46. b8=Q Qc3+ 47. Bd3 (anything else allows mate in 1) Rxc3+ 48. Ke2 (anything else allows mate in 1) Qd2+ 49. Kf1 Qd1#

45. Ke3 Rxd1 46. Qf8+ Kxf8 47. b8=Q+ Kg7 48. Kf3 (anything else leads to a quick checkmate) Qc3+ 49. Kg4 and white is in a mating net (posting all the lines for this variation would take too long)

45. Kf3 Qxd1+ 46. Be2 Qd5 and white is in a mating net (another variation for which posting the lines would be too time consuming)
