Nov-13-05  CapablancaFan: Is it me or is white in zugzwang?
Nov-13-05  blackjacki2: well he's down 2 pawns
Nov-13-05  lopium: False. Ba2, Bd1 ain't such a bad move. Well, he is lost because he has a pawn less and a worse position compared to black. Especially with the King. I guess a lot of other factors too.... But I don't think there's a zugzwang; so yes, it is you!
Nov-13-05  CapablancaFan: <lopium>Zugzwang dosen't mean that an opponent can't move. It simply means that there are no moves left that will be BENIFICAL to the player. In this case ANY move that white makes cannot prevent Ke5 and white's e4 pawn comes off the board next move. Then blackjacki2 is right black will be up 2 pawns and the game easily won by black.
Nov-14-05  lopium: Ok. I knew a zugzwang wasn't when you can't move, but when you're obligated to make a bad move. So here can we say that white is in zugwzang? I don't think so.... And a move benefical is hard to describe!!! ahahaaz!!
