    I'm white in this game. Just a funny game I recently played that I thought I'd share. Anyone else have mates like this where you chase the enemy king to your own back rank to mate them?

    That's a hilarious game. Curious why you didn't play 25 Rc3, but I'm guessing you just like to play with your food before you eat it.

    Just came back to the site main, was wondering if you were still around earlier today actually. Good to see you brother.

    Good game. I was wondering why you did b3, delaying the Rc1 mate.

    Nice piece play in the late opening. The game was lost for him when you became up a rook.

    Because if I had hadn't done b3, and gone for Rc1, he would've escaped with Kxa2.

    Didn't see that one for some reason, you're right.
