I had the position before f5 was played at a very high score for black.
This should read "before f4 was played".

Who knows, maybe you'll get lucky! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: The variations I analyze don't matter. What matters is that I understand what I need to do to win. And if I do it, then luck will not be involved, as I could beat you every single time, like with 1.g4. [SetUp "1"] [FEN "4r3/5pk1/1q1r1...

(request to the audience to not comment on moves, any kind of influence could interfere with the game) I'm don't think anyone is paying attention and those that are aren't likely to purposely interfer. f4 could be drawn so I don't know what to play :D All moves are probably a draw... if you play th...

Re: Zenmastur vs Ovyron No it's not another GROB II!

Previous Game Previous Discussion Source thread Thanks for accepting my challenge!
