    Beautiful - the inevitable pawn push at the end is just sublime.

    What is a good game, anyway?
    Is a game good if I win because I play good or if my opponent plays bad?
    Or is it a good game when my opponent makes a blunder before me?
    Or perhaps a good game is when I learn something, i.e. I lost and learnt why?
    A good game when I don't learn anything, is it really good game

    the awnser is entirely subjective....

    To me, A good game it where i play to the best of my ability...Once i have that, a win or loss or draw are not very important....

    You must have played chess before though, with friends, parents, club maybe?

    I began playing with my family when I was 8, then when I was 13, I started playing with my friends. Then last year I won a school tournament. Then I came on this site to play!
