      @KamAdant he said that every one who doesn’t believe in god would perish. how is that not offending? to say that everyone who believes in what he believes would follow the right path to eternal life and everyone who doesn’t ,like me,would perish and therefore would have a wrong belief is pretty offending to me, At least more offending than just asking why you should follow a guy who lets his own son get killed. And I am not even mad that he wrote that but that you criticize someone for just having a different opinion. I mean you’re acting like it wouldn’t be allowed to ask questions about religion. If someone doesn’t think that a god who let his own son brutally die will lead him to eternal life,that is perfectly fine. If you can’t say what god plans then you shouldn’t say that god is good because you don’t know. So believe in god or not, it still has nothing to do with neither the video nor the Comment.

    A very technically unsound game...but more of a cliffhanger than a lot of the typical "I'll play a memorized game I read about in an article" games. Nobody could say "I know what's happening next, I know who will win" at any point in this one. They played badly, but they also played without it clearly being a memorization exercise; they were actually playing the game as it happened.

      @Mark Solvent Thanks Mark you said perfectly what I was trying to ask but didn't do very clearly.
      I'm with you on cheating, I don't see the point and where is the sense of self achievement!
      All the things you mentioned is what I've felt I've came across in some games. That's why I thought playing faster rapid/blitz would make it harder if they were.
      I played a lot of call of duty but stopped because of cheating. Online games are ruined by it.
      Seems to be this attitude of if you can't beat them then join them.
      I had no idea what could be done but what you said makes sense.
      I just wish they would do it offline or in private matches.

      @davidcarr9772 let’s be honest if you are trying to cheat it’s really not that hard. Play on your pc and pull out an engine on your phone. Funny how our phones can beat gms that have been training their entire lives. I also heard there is software that gives you the moves in real time. I just don’t see the fun in it, unless I mean you have this opponent you are tired of losing to and you are trying to prove something. But still then I’d probably want to improve to beat them but to each their own.

      Not sure how they can combat that cheating as it's not software on the playing device.

      That's what I feel sometimes. That anytime I win is because My oponent played Bad, and not because I played better than him.

      True but on top of letting my opponents make the bad moves, the strategy that worked for me (700 to 1350) was to only allow myself to make the good moves.

      @JC not 3ven the pawn takes rook have queen takes pawn check and then queen takes rook is another line for it blocking black from opening up the center with pawn trades and then that threatens another mate in 3 or 4

      Speaking about it.... Wouldn't the best move for White there actually be Qxc6? Cuz that checks the king, the rook can't escape, then Qxe4, bishop is pinned (Unless black used that to defend the check last move, then that's just check again)

      I'm a 700, I did not see that Rook was hanging. I think alot of these stuff happens in my games too. It's as simply as we don't see it. All our moves does not have to have a plan, I can't think that far or Idon't know what creates a good attack. I'm trying to just not hang my pieces, then I end up in a fork, or bad trade and lose the game. Especially forks is hard as they are not natural for us 700 to spot.

    It's funny when they were playing the pawns to prevent the back rank checkmate. It's clear that they both had tunnel vision there, knowing each other's plan, but completely ignoring the rest of the board. Really equal adversaries.
