Erik and Chess


So, Erik likes to "play" chess online. I'm don't think he understands all the rules really, but he likes to move the peices around and gaff around with the chat box. Usually I set him up in a game room by himself vs the begginner level computer. I used to block any other players from being able to enter his game, but lately I haven't bothered, because it is entertaining when somebody enters his game, assumes from my rating that he is facing a moderately competent player and instead gets my four year old just fooling around. A couple weekends ago, someone with a very low rating wound up playing Erik, thinking he was me- and at the time my rating was fairly high. After half a dozen silly moves, this other guy types into the chat box:

"Stop Patronizing me!"

Here's another funny conversation Erik had today:

Found a cool site:

Puzzle of the Day

Two Bishop End Game

I cheated and watched the vid on how to mate with two bishops. But now I know, so ha. I haven't cheated yet on the bishop and knight end game but I may have to evantually.

Today, I was out and about, and I happened to trip over a "CAUTION: WET FLOOR" sign. And I thought: "There's money to be had here."
