not surprised - but amazed - your game is wonderfully amusing - thought i had seen most endings but no.... - :idea: surprised the game was not stopped by the referee in the sky - where are you when you need them.....

Hilarious.

Could give a person KnightMares, though. All those pesky bishops. Scary.

Isn't it funny how often Idontknow turned up in the forums? I never thought to have fun with him (or her) the way petemarkou did, I usually just played and tried to drop pointers or hints, although he didn't like chatting or taking advice. I'm pretty sure I got out of him once that he was in Thailand, and I'm kind of thinking he was a kid- but I could have been wrong all along.

Anyway, not to take anything at all away from this game, this is one of the funniest things I've ever seen in a chess game.

Brilliant!!! Saved it in my favorites for safekeeping.

That is a 'monstruous' game, but a real chess game, though. I wonder how can a pair of the same-color bishops appear on the board. Via promotion of pawns this is possible, of course, but {we have to agree that is an ugly position}. It is a refined cruelty exerted against a ... ... ... player. Guess the missing words! :P

It was kind of torture in the sense that I delayed the loss from someone who wanted to loose fast! But my intention was to create something funny..
