Default Endgame finesse: another RayLopez Instructional Game (TM)

8/8/p7/2p5/8/P7/3K3k/7Q b - - 0 48

From the above position, White to move and draw!

Another Heirloom Chess (TM), Mistake-Free (TM), RayLopez
Instructional Game (TM) of blitz by Ray Lopez, playing the endgame ala
Rubinstein to salvage a half point. I stretched the board like Reti
did in that famous study where the king prevents the pawn from
queening despite looking impossibly out of position.

BTW the pawn sac at 9...Nd4?! was deliberate--I wanted to complicate
with a weaker player.

Complete game below.

Interesting fairy chess variant. The FEN clearly shows it is black's
move, cutting and pasting the FEN shows the BK in check by a WQ.

Any further interest terminated by sloppiness of egomaniac.

Keep wearing the juice, Ray.

Not to mention, Steve, the fact that the game should have been
virtually over after Ray's "mistake-free" 9...Nxd4?? 10.Nxd4 Qxe5+ and
then 11.Qe2+, instead of White's 11.Ne2?!.

I guess you don't know the rules of chess "SBD" (Stupid Big Dummy?).

When the queen is next to the king, and the king can move, the king
can capture the queen.

Got it, Queen?

Not Steve McQueen either.

Er yes, but the point, which you miss spectacularly, you DUMB ****
is that you stated CLEARLY that it is WHITE TO MOVE with the BLACK
KING in CHECK. That is ILLEGAL.

Got it, Queen?


Here's a handy hint: when you're in a hole....STOP DIGGING.

Not Steve McQueen either.


Clearly, you're not. He had class.

Giving a bad reason for a bad move does not make it a good move.

Hell no. You screwed up royally at several other points. For
example, you were busted after 34...g6??. White could have put you
away he

8/p7/5pp1/1Npp3p/4kP2/P6P/2K3P1/8 w - - 0 37

White played 37.g3?. Instead 37.Nxa7! and you were toast, viz. 37.
Nxa7 Kxf4 38. a4 Ke5 39. Nc8 Ke6 40. a5 Kd7 41. Ne7 d4 42. Kd3 Kc7 43.
Nxg6 Kb7 44. h4 Ka6 45. Nf4 Kxa5 46. g4 etc.

Then after White screwed up, you missed a win he

8/8/p4Np1/2p4p/5P2/P6k/3K4/8 b - - 0 41

You played 41...Kg2??, allowing White to draw, when 41...h4 would
have won.

I was short of time. As it was I drew him with seconds to spare.

Wait a bit...I got one even better coming up...can feel it in my
bones.

Why don't you post a blitz game you're 'proud of'? Don't tell me you
are not proud of any of your games... that's a copout.

That is the whole point Ray.

You label it white to play and draw but give a FEN with black to move.

You can't even take ten seconds to evaluate whether the correct
diagram and stipulation are given and you expect someone to go through
the game?

Keep wearing the juice, Ray.

No, a copout is making a horrendous mistake (White to move),
then claiming it was obvious that it was Black to move (which it was,
so how the **** you made the mistake in the first place staggers the
mind) and ***BLAMING*** sbd because he spotted your mistake
without his having even to go beyond examining the FEN string.

Keep wearing the juice.
