Re: Blunders or why quit playing chess

Earlier in the game I played h6?? instead of Rf7.
After Rf7, Rf7 blacks king can go to h4 and draw. Same holds for Rd2.

Blunders or why quit playing chess

Encountered this position recently in a slow game. Cost maybe 50 euro. Only saving me one hour.
Guess the blunder.

Re: Severe windows 10 problems. What to do?

I hate code I don't understand. So probably I would even go back to a worse previous version with code I do understand.

Re: Severe windows 10 problems. What to do?

Maybe best is to go back to a stable state. Better a worse engine that does not crash and from there try to improve. Don't know yet how much it cost to get Skipper back and whether I can afford it in my situation. Maybe better use computer less otherwise it may get broke earlier and I get same horro...

Re: Severe windows 10 problems. What to do?

I think i will never buy anything again from "Media Markt". Bought a new computer but I see I paid 99 euro for "Power Service Altijd aan". I did not ask for that. Yes it was included in the package.

Re: Severe windows 10 problems. What to do?

A 32 GB USB stick should be available for much less than 10 EUR. So not much of a "but" ... I payed 19 euro for 32 GB. Sales man want...

Re: Severe windows 10 problems. What to do?

Already found .eml files. Does not show topic so i have to open them to find out what is the topic.
Very time consuming. No search possible too. Only know date.

Strange you can't import them in windows mail while windows live mail is not supported anymore.

Some work around?
