So...I followed Yoda's advice to jump in a few blitz matches (blitz chess is an extremely fast form of chess that grants only a small amount of time to players to make their moves, with either no or very small time increments after each move ranging in the seconds). Ooh boy. Did I get my ass kicked. LOL

I should have prefaced that by saying what time controls.  You'd want around 10-15 minute games, or 5+5.  Some people like playing bullet chess, which is just stupid, in my opinion.

I really hope your name in that site is steelattack, if not someone got a really weird message.

I am going to go play Bayonetta in like 3 minutes if you dont show.

EDIT: found him

A hush falls over the crowd in wonder of whether we'll see the challenger, Dvader, respond in kind with the Giuoco Piano, or rather opts for a two-knights defence, or should he be daring enough, a Hungarian defence.

You missed an opportunity for a nice combination there, Steel.

7. Bxf7+ Kxf7
8. dxe5

And you win back the piece because the knight is pinned.

I hope you are using the Snooker commentator voice.

I have no idea what's going on! Sad

    Children, our lives have been gongs striking; clamour and boasting; cries of despair; blows on the nape of the neck in gardens.
