    ...but you lost that game.

    hintjul - Zenic RHP 2010.


    White to play resigned.

    White has the makings of a very promising attack.

    What happened?

    Yeah! Inquiring minds gots to know! SMH and wonder what if. White had it in the bag indeed. Why resign with the initiative?

    I always wondered how strong Zenic would be if he cut down his game load by about 750 games.

    I'm fairly sure that he'd be tactical nightmare. But I don't see how you can remember your plans when you play that damn many games.


    It's hard for me to keep my strategic ideas in line playing about 5, I don't see how the hundreders do it.

    You and me both, mate. I think it's called "having a life beyond chess", but I'm yet to decide whether that's a good thing or not.

    I'd go further. Keeping in mind my own rating 🙁, white is dead won. Rg3, and then bring in your other rook either over d1 or through a pawn storm, and I don't see what black can hope for except a white blunder.

    White is checkmating in short order after Rg3+, isn't he, never mind having a promising attack?

    If Zenic and Billy Dean played each other, what would happen? Double mate?

    Sorry my mistake, I did say White to play instead of White resigns.
    A silly slip. Usually the player who has the move resigns.

    ...White has just played 18.Rd3.

    So it's Black to play when White resigned. (even more baffling).

    Black can prolong things with 18....Kh8 or 18....Be4.
