    Default Chess

    Numbnuts here has promised to thrash a relative at this game.

    Problem is he plays for Scotland and has a ranking the same as a player I once got the better of after about 20 games.

    I will be black so it is Petrosian for me, if I can get 6 moves in then I might have a chance.

    Personally I would go for the Telephonus defence - arrange for him to receive a phone call - and swipe his pieces when he's not looking.

    You're a contractor, so tackle the problem with software: Shredder, Rybka or Fritz.

    You must win, as he's a Scott and they must remain downtrodden.

    My family motto is "Sneaky Is Best", so my advice is to cheat.

    Can you get a decent chess app for your iPhone?

    Who is this guy, just curious like ?
    If you find this post offensive, please insert "Chan" before and "tho" after, then it should be OK.

    Arrange to play the equivilent ranked player in England.
    feed him the jocks moves, then feed the other moves back.

    that should fork him

    Personally I'd learn how to not issue challenges when I'm pissed if I were you.

    It happened to a mate of mine.
    He approached a bloke near a gay bar who was wearing a pink tie. 'You look like a queen, I'm a rookie but would you like to spend all knight watching porn and bashing my bishop?'
    'WHAT???'
    'er.... i said, do you fancy a game of chess'
