At War

I'm waiting for white to move. This has been a hard fought battle though my opponent isn't out of the game yet. “Easy, you know, does it, son.”

black is in good shape but there's still quite a lot of danger.

David Cranmer said...

Yes, there is, Charles. White is going to attempt—with great vengeance—to push a pawn across with his king's help.

I've forgotten some of the moves, but can't the white pawn take the King?

Oscar said...

I mean the black queen.

David Cranmer said...

That's the black king, Oscar. No, the pawn can only attack (or put the king in check) diagonally.

Man, it's been too long since I played at chess!

Go to Red Hot Pawn, Oscar. Play some online chess. Lots of fun... and frustration.

David, I'm sorry I missed this earlier. I'm trying to reenact this situation on my chessboard.

Prashant, hopefully it ends as well for you.
