It has been another 2 days or so. Can you make a move? CreativeHedgehog 17:10, 23 July 2020 (EDT)

Hello again! Sorry, I am on vacation and I forgot all about this. I made my move, your turn. HonestCat (talk) 12:32, 24 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

Hi! Made a move. CreativeHedgehog 16:55, 24 July 2020 (EDT)

Queen's gambit! HonestCat (talk) 18:59, 24 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

Development time! CreativeHedgehog 19:24, 24 July 2020 (EDT)

I decided to trade. By the way, would you like to play 3-check with me? I know you signed up. HonestCat (talk) 20:22, 24 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

Yes, HonestCat. CreativeHedgehog 20:30, 24 July 2020 (EDT)

Alright! I'm trying to control the center :) HonestCat (talk) 21:36, 24 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

While your controling the center, I'll develop my pieces :D CreativeHedgehog 21:55, 24 July 2020 (EDT)

Development vs. center control! Honestcat (talk) 22:07, 24 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

Who wins? CreativeHedgehog 22:24, 24 July 2020 (EDT)

My knight is pinned, but not for long... HonestCat (talk) 22:28, 24 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

Yes, it's captured. CreativeHedgehog 22:35, 24 July 2020 (EDT)

Man, I blundered already! At least I will have the initiative... HonestCat (talk) 22:48, 24 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

Oops, made a bad move. CreativeHedgehog 22:49, 24 July 2020 (EDT)

I could have played e5 and hit the b-pawn, but I saw it too late and played Bf4. HonestCat (talk) 22:56, 24 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

My best move is to develop. CreativeHedgehog 22:58, 24 July 2020 (EDT)

I could have played Rd1, but I decided to capture the pawn first. HonestCat (talk) 23:04, 24 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

Before you get your rook to the open file, You'll have to move your bishop. CreativeHedgehog 23:21, 24 July 2020 (EDT)

Bg3 (figured it was safer than on f4). HonestCat (talk) 10:07, 25 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

Knight fork time! (Forking the queen and the fork of the rook and king) CreativeHedgehog 14:06, 25 July 2020 (EDT)

LOL, I had only two ways to stop both. Rd1 doesn't work because Nxf3+ is check. Honestcat (talk) 15:01, 25 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

I decided to first get rid of your bishop.

Attack and defend! Honestcat (talk) 16:11, 25 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

I don't have a good move, so I'm going to open up your king side while preparing for Rd8. CreativeHedgehog 16:35, 25 July 2020 (EDT)

I decided to take with the queen and give you the d-file.

I decided to protect my knight with hopes of bringing out my bishop and castle. CreativeHedgehog 16:40, 25 July 2020 (EDT)

I was going to play Rd1 again to fight for the d-file, but instead I did this pin, in hope of casting soon. Honestcat (talk) 17:09, 25 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

Accidentally forgetting, I castled. CreativeHedgehog 17:21, 25 July 2020 (EDT)

I took the queen. Honestcat (talk) 17:43, 25 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

At least I saved my knight... CreativeHedgehog 18:45, 25 July 2020 (EDT)

Good move, I moved back. Honestcat (talk) 09:46, 26 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

I will play defensively. CreativeHedgehog 14:57, 26 July 2020 (EDT)

Good move again! My bishop is useless now. I am aligning with your king.Honestcat (talk) 16:21, 26 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

Now, you can't move your knight. CreativeHedgehog 16:27, 26 July 2020 (EDT)

You are defending very well! Honestcat (talk) 16:29, 26 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

Thanks! Also, I don't have anything to do, so I decided to get my rook to an active square. CreativeHedgehog 16:51, 26 July 2020 (EDT)

That overdefends the pawn, so my bishop has no chance on that diagonal. Check.Honestcat (talk) 19:44, 26 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

I will have to give up my bishop, but in turn I get a rook. CreativeHedgehog 22:07, 26 July 2020 (EDT)

I took the pawn on f7. Honestcat (talk) 06:46, 27 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat

Not my ideas, but I double defened my rook. CreativeHedgehog 14:34, 27 July 2020 (EDT)

Your knight was defending this checkmate. Good game! Honestcat (talk) 17:41, 27 July 2020 (EDT)HonestCat
