    Why do you keep making this moronic thread? No one fell for the bait the first time. I refuse to believe you're actually this stupid.

      It leads to funny situations among low rated players where someone is clearly about to win but they don't know how to checkmate so they end up blundering into a stalemate.

      it's because of this retard rule (that didn't exist in the past) where the king can never "fall" on board, his fall instead being implied by the checkmate
      so if you can never send your king into suicide (illegal move lmao) and the enemy player can never kill your king and instead needs to autistically checkmate instead, scenarios where there are no legal moves left are inevitable and must conclude into draws for whatever reason

      personally i always ignore this dogshit rule when i play with my mates

      It’s good because it forced players to continue to make smart moves even if they’re up a bunch.

      Fun fact: White moving first wasn't formalised until the late 19th century. The Immortal Game, for example, had Black move first.

        You just made that up retard. The immortal game started with the king’s gambit

          You're the retard here. Anderssen had the black pieces and he started first. Modern formulations just give him the white pieces for convention. His queen was on the square that we call d1 today (algebraic notation didn't exist back then).

    I know this is a bait thread but I cannot even fathom what anon is trying to imply here. Is he pretending to be mad that the game isn't letting him actively lose? I do not understand.

    You can still win this game and take his knight on the next turn. Start moving your pawn up and hope he forgrtd about his bishop then your rook can move forward. The right side of the board is blocked but even without a queen YOU can still hold the left side of the board

      Play humans instead of computers. Humans make mistakes that you can punish, and they miss bad moves that you make. Computers don’t.

      It's not because there's a line where you lose an additional knight. After Nxg3+ and hxg3 you have Bxh3 gxh3 and Qxg5. You trade a knight and a bishop for 2 knights and a queen, you're just a full queen up.

      Actually have a plan. For a beginner have your plan be inconsequential and plan to lose.
      Make your plan inconsequential
      >can I take 3 pieces with a knight?
      Plan to lose
      >you suck, and you are going to be experimenting to play around with scenarios

      Just the act of trying to complete your own little plan will help you understand how the larger game of chess is played. Like a roguelike losing can be fun.

    Chess has rules. You agreed to play by the rules when you agreed to play.
