    As far as I can tell these are the right moves. I'm not big on internet language "lol" means lost of laughs right? I must be missing something.

    he he Egor, I was actually referring to me making the moves properly on my board at home (which you couldn't see).

    I once made a mistake in the old postal correspondence chess by setting up a position with an 'a' pawn pushed accidentally one square further forward than it actually was, which changed the nature of the whole position. :-)

    Back to our game: 15... Nxf3

    Hi Egor,

    Up until your last move, I had the position deriving from:

    1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.e3 c5 4.c3 Qc7 5.Bd3 Nbd7 6.Nbd2 e5 7.dxe5 Nxe5 8.Bb1 Be7 9.O-O O-O 10.Qe2 Bg4 11.e4 dxe4 12.Bxe4 Bd6 13.Bc2 Rfe8 14.Qd1 Rad8
    15.Kh1 Nxf3 16.Nxf3 Bxh2

    Which would give:
    WK:h1 WQ:d1 WR:f1,a1 WB:c1,c2 WN:f3 WP:a2,b2,c3,f2,g2
    BK:g8 BQ:c7 BR:e8,d8 BB:g4,h2 BN:f6 BP:a7,b7,c5,f7,g7,h7

    Now I have to wonder if we really have been setting up the position correctly, for if your next move is 17.Bg5, then I can simply capture your Queen on d1 with my Rook on d8, which (unless I am overlooking something), would equate to an horrendous and (given your previous play) uncharacteristic, blunder on your behalf.

    Given that we currenltly don't have the PGN uploader thingy working, it is perfectly understandable if you have made a blue in setting up the pieces. If this is the case then may I suggest that you choose another 17th move, (rather than perhaps spoil an interesting game with a one move boo-boo).

    If I have made a blue in setting up the position, then I apologize. Would you please double check the position?

    If it is still your wish to play 17.Bg5, then my response will be 17... Rxd1.

    Cheers,

    EE :-)

    I have inputted the moves and I agree with the move order so far. It seems that both of you have been playing the same position.

    Thank you for the confirmation, GG.

    Of course, this doesn't mean we aren't prone to errors when playing through the moves, analysing our next moves by moving the pieces on the board, taking the analysis moves back, setting up the position wrong ... and then deciding on our next moves when using the wrong position!

    I know that this can also happen even if there is a functional PGN uploader thingamijiggy, but given that some contestants are refusing to make any more moves until the uploader is active again, I think it only fair to those opponents of mine who are brave enough to "fly without a PGN uploader", to have the chance to reconsider their move if, on the surface, it seems an obvious howler.

    Of course, Egor could prove me wrong and may have intentionally played this move as a positional sacrifice, which forces a winning combination that I cannot yet see.

    PS: Do you know if there is any timeframe when it comes to restoring the PGN uploader functionality? It certainly makes things a lot easier when continuing these online games, and as a player you have fewer doubts about having set up an accurate position.
