    No worries about you taking your time Careth, a lot of players have "wimped out" of posting their moves simply because the "pgn uploader" has been disabled.

    Now, having a serious look at the position, I am not entirely sure you have set up all the pieces properly.

    Are you sure you wish to play this piece sacrifice?

    I have just played through all the moves and I think that your last move is an egregious blunder, to which I can simply respond with 20.Qxd4+(check).

    Would you please re-examine the position, and either confirm your 19th move (if that is what you want to play) or proffer a different 19th move?

    I apologize if this is all just a very clever sacrifice, the nuances of which I cannot immediately envisage, but I wouldn't want you to spoil the game just because the pgn uploader wasn't working for you, and you had missed a move in setting up the position.

    Cheers,

    EE

    Conditional:

    if 19... Nxd4 20.Qxd4+

    Yeah, I think that was a mistake thanks for the takeback.

    19... Kg8

    *notes EE has a takeback to use when he wants*

    Can I use it in the game I lost against Kerry Stead?

    Smile

    21.Bg4

    Windows (among many others) does that to the letters, they are the ASCII alternate character set. You can acess them by holding down the ALT key, and typing a four figure number between 0000 and 0255 on the numeric keypad.

    For instance:

    Alt+0191 on the numeric keypad of a Windows computer produces: ¿ the "upside down" question mark. This, of course, is the Spanish question mark (written at the start of a question phrased in Spanish), which is used as the "nose" in my pretend smilie.

    In my work, I often have to make use of the Euro currency character € (ALT+0128), the English Pound Stirling character £ (ALT+0163), and the character that doubles both as the Japanese Yen, and Chinese Yuan Renminbi currency symbol: ¥ (ALT+0165).

    You will find that being ASCII, these will also work in many non-windows based programs.

    I am sure you can easily find a "map" of these somewhere on the Internet, and how to type them, however I have personally found it much more fun to simply experiment to see what characters I might be able to display (and how they may be combined).

    Cheers,
