    Fair enough!
    Although question being posed is not about this game but and alternative line that should have been taken.
    And accordingly differs from the game that is in play.

    Why just not wait until the game is over?
    Then we can discuss it freely and thoroughly.

    unfortunately the problem is that, even though the position may have passed, any advice on what you should have done may still influence what you yet do. Even if it can't the rule is a blanket ban on talking about games in progress, or parts/off shoots thereof, to remove the chance or suspicion that someone is seeking advice to aid their game.

    I hope you understand

    Although conversely BF,

    This post is not asking about help with my game at all.
    In fact which moves black should play was never mentioned.

    fair enough, but like I said there is a blanket rule to not talk about games in progress to remove all doubt. It may seem silly from your perspective if you know that what you're talking about can't influence your game, but others aren't to know that (for example, although you aren't asking about black's moves. could you be looking for predixctions as to what white may play against you?).

    Even if your question was examined and seen as OK by a really good (ie. far better than me) player tp not be able to influence the game, if we allow one question about a game in progress then how do we object to the next 10 that might not be so innocent? Nope, even if it excludes innocent questions the rule still applies for good reasons. I hope you understand

    No question was asked at all, the game was posted and a statement about it was given as the thread title, no question, nothing wrong.
