    Game 9824171

    Sure, white has a nice passed pawn but doesn't black get a perpet here? Black has check and then the E3 rook just goes to E2 and how does white stop a perpet?

    That wasn't a game, that was a 2300+ derp fest

    What do you mean derp fest?

    Agree. He should definitely have played on there. Also, same players, he has just resigned this one too...> Game 9824168 I wouldn't have folded in that one either.

    Something fishy going on at the top, methinks, ha ha!

    Looking at the Tournament 13999 a draw was no good to Black.

    A January forum post indicates Black (wqt2008) may not be taking
    any chess on here too seriously.
    Thread 150618 with his:

    "....there is no pleasure in winning a game and losing a friend." statement.

    (though for a while it looked like he was trying win on time with KN v K.)

    Maybe due to his high game load he missed it and only saw in his
    mind this position....


    46...Ree2 then 47 Rxb3.


    47...Rxb3 is a clear loss missing 47...Rf2+ is a clear draw.

    I PM'd him and asked him about that game and he said he knew it was a perpet but with the long time set for the games, he just wanted to get that one over with so he could go on to games he knew he could win. I think he said Carp was 'very strong player' and was not certain it was a perpet so he just resigned to be able to concentrate on the rest of his games. If I could see it as a perpet and I am 500 points lower, he should have seen that instantly I would have thought but I gather he wasn't interested in just getting the half point.

    Run that game and a few others through an engine.

    Well that and resigning is the third strongest move.

    He apparently did not take the time to use the analyze board like we did.

    As weak as I am, I didn't have to even use the analyze board to see the perpet, it stuck out like a sore nose

    Once you pointed it out, it looked like a perpetual to me too. But once I moved the pieces around, I was able to verify it.
