    I've never got 3 before.
    Knowing my luck he'd resign just as I'm going to promote the 3rd time.
    7 would be stalemate city for me. I'm clumsy like that.

    It'd be interesting to see if you could resurrect your entire back rank in your opponent's back rank.

    Game 1443432

    I thought about it, but decided to go for the quick kill instead.

    getting pissed off because your opponent wastes your time is pretty silly. wasting even more time voluntarily is plain stupid. it's like someone hit you in the face, and you decided to "teach him a lesson" by repeatedly hitting yourself in the face.

    I've never understood this behaviour.
    A clean kill in a couple of moves must be better than getting a number of queens first. To what purpous?

    I'm not getting pi$$ed off with the game at all. I couldn't care less really, other than it would be amusing to get 6 or 7 queens then mate an opponent who is clearly playing for stalemate.

    I am easily amused.

    Why do you find it amusing? I just can't understand...

    can one mate with three knights? this might be more amusing than a board full of queens

    I don't know, but with six you apparently can.

    You can with 3 I've done it a few times, although I recommend 4 it's much easier that way.
