    Well, it was under the assumption that he pulled the knight back for defense earlier when you moved the knight.


    Anyway, from this point, there is a move in chess called the en passant which would lead to:


    As you can see, at this point, your pawn has two knights on hold and no matter which one moves, the other gets captured. Again, this is only if he pulled the knight back for defense at the beginning. If he didn't, and just ignored your advancement to his side, it's still a bad position since your pawn is still attacking that one knight. If he doesn't move that knight, it's checkmate (not check as I said earlier). If he moves that knight... it's still checkmate...

    3. exf6ep Nc6
    4. f7+ Ke7
    5. Nd5 ...

    At this point, it can either be checkmate if he runs away with the King instead of capturing the knight. However, that will result in dragging the King to the center which would result in win for you anyway.

    And I'm not good in chess at all. I lose all the time against the computer. I mostly mentioned these sequences I thought up because it's pretty much too late to pull it off now.

    ^ en passant... I've seen this before but I never understood how it worked...guess I learnt something new... a lot people I play, never use it... maybe becuase it's so uncommon in average game. I guess if I were to ever use it, my opponents might complain because they've never seen it before.

    Made an edit to earlier post.

    And yeah, en passant is less commonly used compared to castling. I didn't know about it til a few months ago also. Told you I was noob, lol.

    ^because its harder to have, and not to mention, why destroy your pawn defense against an advanced piece?

    Casting, is good, but also dangerous, can bit you back..

    @sd You had mate, why didn't you take??? .. its evil to play with people.

    @dna pay attention on all pieces, where they are attacking, all pieces protect one another, best course is to attack the piece that is giving support, and NEVER back down on attacking, the one move you don't attack, pin or check, it might cost you.

    Well,I didn't want your queen to escape (and I wanted to trade as many pieces as possible). Also worth mentioning that you could of saved your queen/brought her in a defensive position if you moved her to Qe6 (and killed my bishop).

    Heh, I know that you wouldn't have wanted to let my queen get away but... ah well. I'll commentate more on our match after it's over.

    The more trades I make, the better it is for me.

    There are always exceptions to those rules.

    There are exceptions, in this case, I still get the advantage.
