    Chess Moose seems to be high on that list at 2230. Anyone lose more?

    Go to the Players Table, click on "moves total", and you will see that 2k losses barely scratches the surface.

    I'm doing my part to catch up, lately!

    Poor Elamef37 has lost 8,638 games,

    If a King is the standard 3 inches high and you placed each King
    end to end that would be approx ½ a mile of resigned Kings.

    Elamef37 is in my clan (Morphy's Maniacs), and she has 81 wins, 1 draw, and 52 losses in clan play. She has been an important contributing factor to our moving from page 4 to page 3.

    honus is also in my clan, and as I write this, they are the top two in number of moves made this month. They are chess playing machines.

    Hi Paul

    "They are chess playing machines,"
    possibly a bad choice of words for this site. 🙂

    Pass on regards to Elamef37, advise lighten load and not move so quick.

    I looked at some very recent games.

    She had the bones of a good position in this game Game 7471953
    then let it slide with silly errors which bear the hallmark of quick play.

    The way she drops her Queen & Rook to discovered Knight checks
    shows an alarming lack of sense of danger considering all the games
    she has played.

    Game 7449626 was another she was winning that was thrown away.
    Seems to totally miss Knight moves.
    (a sure sign she is not reading the board).

    The final mate with a pawns and the Knights covering the flights
    squares has it's humerous side.

    There are hints of a good chess player trying to get out but not getting
    the chance due to taking on far too many games so keeping her eyes
    on the time control and not what's happening on the board.

    She did pull off a lovely swindle. One I would have proud been off.
    Play this out. Elame is Black - you won't see the mate till it's all over.

    However, walking into the double hit on the Queen and mate on g7
    forcing her to shed the Queen 21...Qb6? was resignable.

    21...Qb6 was obviously played after a few seconds thought.

    Wow, what would I have to do to get an analysis like that of my games?

    I'll write you a poem.

    (but please let's pretend this game never happened: Game 7404886)

    Hi! How's Brissy? Armidale is so cold I can't play chess - my hand freezes to the mouse.

    Yeah, I never even knew there were black stars until looking at the board after seeing this thread. I probably have a year or more until I move to the 10K star so the red and black stars 😲

    And what happened to the spinning stars? I liked those.
