lol, yes Ken it can be done,,,carefully. I had to do it on a board as in my head I could not work out with 7 queens where the king could go.

Taotaomonas Thanks very much for your lengthy reply re when to resign. I very much appreciate your comments and will certainly take them onboard. I am beginning to get a better feel for the whole process of playing this type of chess and certainly find players with higher ratings make some strange moves and the occasional slip. Perhaps this is partly due to playing 40-50 games at the same time? Will catch up with you again sometime I am sure. Regards Jeff.

... so would you say 7 queens is possible in this game?

Earl of Norfolk, not sure what your problem is, this is hardly a 'game in progress', this game ended many moves ago!!





your opponent might have a good chance at stalemate.to comment on it before its over is not allowed.you can annontate the game and discuss it in length later,it might deserve its own thread

I'm not sure who is looking more ridiculous in this game, me or my opponent




One should not comment on a game which is still in progress.

Thats what I meant, I dont know how to find a game from a game number? If you can tell me great as I would like to look at the position. I know its obviously only amusement for you now but its raised a question (I am visulizing only in my head)of can you put 7 queens on the board before mate or stalemate.

Im Doubtful you can? but I can see it better from a board position and something to play with........mobile and don't have a board or pen/paper to hand.

... well, I'm 4 queens up and I have 3 pawns left, so mathematially it's possible, but I have to be wary of the stalemate
