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.

That's not true, a piece advantage would likely be enough for me against a GM if it's not a very fast time control. But a pawn never, i would be crushed. I am rated just above 2000 FIDE.
