Checkmate

forging ahead;
turning across,
if the
pawn gets
to the
rook,
killing a
knight or two;
the empire falls apart
in just a few moves!

yes, make a wrong move and someone's world falls apart. i've seen friends who have done that. and we can't help because they won't listen.

nice one, gautami!

You've got the 'moves' girlfriend..MM MM MM *snaps finger!

I am always in awe of the Masters who can race ahead to the logical conclusion of the match far beyond the grasp of plodding distracted amateurs like moi who are trying to think one move ahead.

If you fail to plan,
you plan to fail!

I'm reading this on Dec. 18, so I've also seen your next post --- amazing how this was timed. There are no accidents...

dsnake1: When we makes any move in life we don't know if it going to be right or wrong. We just do it. LIke you say, a few do it fully well knowing another's life will be affected but they don't care.

homo escapeons: no one snaps fingers at me!

*almost angry*

I might not be a master but I can play rather well. I do beat my brothers at times. After all they taught me to play!!

andrew: Come to think of it, yes. I did not correlate!!
