    Hi folks,

    I blundered a rook in the center of the board thinking I was playing a cute tactic on my opponent's queen- I moved too fast and immediately realized I screwed up.

    There was still lots of stuff on the board, so I pretended like it really was a sac, and played harrassing moves, looking for a draw by repetition.

    I thought we were going to draw, but my opponent wanted to play on, and it ended with me having a pretty mate.

    There is no justice in chess sometimes.

    Paul

    Poor guy. Do you think he saw it when you took that rook?

    I don't think so- we've played several games, and we both usually resign when the end is obvious.
