Re: Durrr in process of losing 60k+ in a chess bet.. good month for ra





Is durrrr actually any good at chess, or does he just like betting on stuff?

hes not a lot better than me, and i consider myself terrible.

you really have to be quite bad at chess to ever lose with a rook advantage against anyone. just play defensively and force a bunch of trades -- they don't all even have to be even -- and you'll be unstoppable in the endgame. this is why chess is a terrible game to handicap -- a single pawn advantage would be enough to make any competitive player a favorite against the top gm's in the world.

its really not as easy as you think.

i'm not saying anyone who has ever played the game should be able to win this, but any serious chess player -- even one that's not that good among serious chess players -- should. it's kind of like playing nlh with the button every hand.
