Our chessboard

@The passed pawn Inn+ My father had an African friend when I was a kid, I think his name as Shaikh, like the title. I am not sure about this, but I believe the chessboard was made by Shaikh's brother. I think it was a gift, but I will have to ask my dad - maybe he bought it. He passed it on to my youngest a couple of years ago. It is made of marble, yet the pieces are soft to the touch. I love this board. :heart:

A big fan of Opensource amongst the chess top players! (or was it top chess players?... And they say English is easy...)

Top chess players.

And no one says English is easy. Except maybe Germans. Those punks always speak English better than I do.

@Haakon Meland Eriksen (Parlementum) did you see it live? I find this kind of chess amazing... I cannot understand how they ca think that fast. It's somehow depressing too... :P

I've been playing on lichess lately 10+0, losing a lot. I still need much more time not to blunder every move :(

Complimenti!
Dopo la tua propaganda per Lichess ho cominciato ad affacciarmi timidamente.
Qualche gioco blitz senza account. Con risultati misti. Comunque divertente e mi ricorda dei vecchi tempi

Io sto giocando con risultati alterni. Ho passato un lungo periodo in cui praticamente non ho giocato, per paura!
Ora mi sono imposto di giocare e quindi partecipo ai tornei sotto i 1700. Ne ho appena finito uno, +2 -2 =0

In the last days I found GM Yasser Seirawan (https://lichess.org/@/yasser-seirawan ) and IM Eric Rosen on lichess (https://lichess.org/@/EricRosen ) \o/

(BTW I had a game in a simul witth Eric Rosen. He's been really nice and kind in the chat. Aslo sent a message to Seirawan, who kindly answered almost immediately)

Now it seems that also the World Champion has an account there:

Yasser Seirawan mi piace molto come didatta. Quando sorride è proprio una bomba di simpatia

Yasser Seirawan is a graduate of my high school. Sadly, none of his genius drifted down to me.

I really like Seirawan's lessons at Saint Louis Chess Club

I am four pints in, so expect genious. ;-) Black Pawn at D3 can move "safely" to D2, because Bishop at H6 protects the black pawn from white Knight at C4. If black Pawn at D3 reaches D1 it is promoted to officer, Knight, Bishop, Rock or Queen.

I think the promotion to officer is the strongest
