Easy, but 1835 not easy. Haven't being in this zone for long time. I think my record on Kurnik was 1860 or close. never hit 1900 :roll: All these kids are babies in fast play :lol: Few of them are OK but need to study PP

Unfortunately most real players ignore online play, and most online players stay away of real ty's. The true is in the middle. Playing fast games is a good practice. All you need to do - do not overplay :lol:

Could one of you good guys demonstrate the winning line for me in this position? I've been screwing with it for a couple of days (!) and still can't see it through to the end... .

Obviously I'm missing something (please keep your comments more-or-less civil...).

Thanks.

Yes, of course. Very pretty, more like a composed problem than an actual endgame. Exquisite.

Don't know why it eluded me...maybe I should have tried moving the pieces around because my sight-solving abilities are not very good... .

11-8, 3x12 6-9, 26x19 9x11 and it's all opposition into first position.

Perhaps I should stick to Candyland.

Thanks, John.
