    I'm a lowly 1483 rated player, but I'm rather happy with spotting this move in a game I'm currently playing. It's nearly over, with mate in the next few moves. Look at this position, black to move:

    We can't comment on games in progress. Which is just as well here as I see you've now made about a dozen more moves since this position, which would indicate that there was no 'mate in the next few moves' for you.

    If you wait till the game is over and then post the position, I'm sure we can all have fun with it then

    Please read carefully... I said that currently, as in at the moment, I have a force win in a few moves (ok, 4 moves) and not after the move in this position.

    Don't make me off as some lame cheater and lier. The correct move in the above position only paid off much later.

    I'll gladly wait if that is required, but please don't be rude.

    No rudeness intended. Sorry if that's how it came across.

    I am genuinely looking forward to the discussions of the position which will follow when the game is over.

    In my opinion ruthless!!



    For Wumpus: next time just hold your enthusiasm and wait until the game has actually finished. (even if the critical point is already in the past)
